SCREENING OF 80s/90s ACTIVIST MUSICAL FILMS WITH Q&A

To mark World AIDS Day, Edinburgh Artists' Moving Image Festival - EAMIF returns with an event at The Fruitmarket Gallery's BookMarket showcasing the absurd and political works of John Greyson. Alongside rarely shown shorts from the 1980s, the event centres on clips from Zero Patience (1993). The film uses the unlikely form of song and dance to tell the story of the unfairly stigmatised, supposed ‘patient zero’ of the AIDS epidemic in North America.
Q&A
Followed by a streamed discussion with the director, alongside contributions from HIV Scotland.
VENUE
The event takes place in BookMarket, The Fruitmarket Gallery's temporary exhibition space in Waverley Mall during their renovation work. There will be an interval in the screening and a chance to grab a drink.
Organised by Edinburgh Artists' Moving Image Festival with the support of The Fruitmarket Gallery and HIV Scotland. Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. bfimuscials.co.uk
