T A P E x INVISIBLE WOMEN PRESENT
A sexy, sensuous and surprising programme celebrating female and non-binary desire.
Celebrate the diversity and fluidity of desire with TOUCHED, a shorts programme showcasing sensuous shorts by female and non-binary filmmakers. Co-curated by collectives T A P E and Invisible Women, this subversive and surprising programme connects filmmakers from across the decades, combining contemporary work with rarities from the archive. The result is a witty, intimate and unapologetically sexy selection of films which open up space for wider discussions about self-love, intimacy and longing.
