Queer Cinema Collective/ Saving Face, 9 May 2019, from £4 - Book now
They’re back. Manchester’s fledgling Queer Cinema Collective’s return to Partisan with their fifth screening. This time they’re presenting Alice Wu’s 2004 debut film Saving Face. Some fifteen years on, the director is now at work on a follow up for Netflix, but this lesbian romance has plenty of admirers. Praised in The New York Times for its sharply written characters, the film follows three generations of Chinese-Americans living in New York, with a focus on a budding relationship between Wil (Michelle Krusiec) and Vivian (Lynn Chen).
Queer Cinema Collective is DIY cinema at its best. Programmed by a group of queer women in Manchester, all ticket money goes towards future screenings. The collective aim to offer a fun, welcoming atmosphere too, with comfy sofas, tea, coffee, juice and even a raffle. What more could you want?
