20:30 – MALGA KUBIAK – V’INCI, 113′
As an illegitimate child, Da Vinci was somewhat of an outcast from birth. Centuries later, his homosexuality has been a topic of discussion. This punk film offers a queer reconstruction of scenes from Leonardo’s life, while also serving as a casting call for angels and gods to populate his colossal canvases and frescoes.
Malga Kubiak, originally from Warsaw, is a poet, performance artist, punk and post-porn filmmaker who made an impact on the underground cultural scene in Sweden in the 1980s with projects such as DS Art Ensemble, Miss Mess, and GBG Poetry Art Festival. She has worked between Gothenburg and Stockholm for years. Her films confront the viewer with existential issues, using a hectic flow of images, black humor, and provocative pornography.
