Pride filmnights at OSA Budapest

23Jul09

Next week the pride filmnights organized by the Rainbow Mission Foundation and the Open Society Archives continues with the screening of Shinjuku Boys which is a documentary on Japanese cross-dressers, transgendered.

The aim of the screenings  should be some kind of preparation for the LGBT Pride Week at the end of August but even if it was promised after the screenings we haven’t had any discussions on the topic as far as I know. I attended 2 events and missed one, last week when A Village Romance of Kriszta Bódis was screened. Maybe they had a discussion after that but I don’t think so.

Otherwise the number of the attendants is not so high, I am concerned about why. Probably people don’t get the information, they don’t know about the filmnights. I don’t want to presume that it’s not interesting enough because I know it is, and especially for Hungarian. This country is one of the most controversials in every topic concerning identities differently defined. All that is not familiar with the society’s conceptions has to fight for its right to exist.
