SQIFF Presents: By Hook or By Crook + Unhung Heroes

  • Cinema, CCA Glasgow 350 Sauchiehall Street Glasgow, Scotland, G2 3JD United Kingdom (map)

By Hook or By Crook (2001) chronicles 3 weeks in the life of a handsome, small-town trans man with a nagging messiah-complex. Shy heads to the big city to sink himself into a life of crime and meets Valentine, a deliriously expressive, wise-acre adoptee on a misguided search for his birthmother. The 2 freaky grifters join forces and get up to misadventures in this anti-authoritarian tale of friendship, trust and redemption. Screening alongside Unhung Heroes (2002), a short comedy about five trans guys who scheme to raise over a million dollars for a penis transplant. Lazlo Pearlman, film and performance maker, academic, and director of Unhung Heroes, will join us to chat DIY queer and trans filmmaking.

Ticket information:

Both films are in the English language with English language subtitles or captions. The post-film chat will be BSL interpreted.
