No Tears for the Creatures of the Night
Vacant Closet Collective
Center for Sex and Culture
1349 Mission Street @ 9th
Inspired by the life and work of legendary artist and activist Will Munro (1975-2010), Vacant Closet Collective brings you an evening of queer punk film and visual art. The short film program features Will Munro’s 8mm films “You’ll Dance to Anything” and “Rebels Rule”, the artist profile “Will Munro’s Dirty Load”, and Wrik Meads “Filth”. Filmmaker Kevin Hegge will present his documentary film “She Said Boom: The Story of Fifth Column” about a group of female artists and filmmakers, including GB Jones (The Yo Yo Gang, JD’s Fanzine), who’s female art-punk band helped spawn the queercore and riot girl movements. Punk photographers Martin Sorrondeguy (Limp Wrist) and Don Pyle (Trouble in the Camera Club) present their slideshow presentation “Clocked”: in which they explore the overt and implicit themes of homosexuality in their photographs of the underground music scene of which their work collectively spans from 1975 to the present day.
