Statt in Einfamilienhäusern zu hocken oder sich hinter grauen Stadthausfassaden zu verstecken, richten einige Menschen zwischen Dortmund und Duisburg ihr Wohnzimmer auf der Straße ein, veranstalten Kinoprogramme in leerstehenden Gebäuden, kultivieren verwilderte Gewächshäuser neu oder betreiben gemeinsam Gärten – und setzen damit ein Zeichen gegen Brachflächen, Leerstand, Anonymität und Stillstand.

Erklärtes Ziel ist es daher immer, die Einheit der beiden Ortsteile – selbstverständlich unter eigener Führung – wiederherzustellen. (Tipp vom Festivaldirektor)

Queercore: How to Punk a Revolution

Deutschland 2017, 80 min (OV), Regie: Yony Leyser
What happens when the community you need is not the community you have? Tell yourself it exists over and over, make fan zines that fabricate hordes of queer punk revolutionaries, create subversive movies, and distribute those movies widely—and slowly, the community you’ve fabricated might become a real and radical heartbeat that spreads internationally. This is the story that Queercore tells, from the start of a pseudo-movement in the mid-1980s, intended to punk the punk scene, to the widespread rise of artists who used radical queer identity to push back equally against gay assimilation and homophobic punk culture.
