No Shadow Between the Thighs: A Ridykeulous Film Programme

A delicious meander through classic, cult and unknown films of Queer Cinema

This season of The Screen we conspired with our exhibiting artist-curators Ridykeulous (Nicole Eisenman & A.L. Steiner, with Sam Roeck) to deliver a selection of art house queer film.

To accompany our current exhibition, Ridykes’ Cavern of Fine Inverted Wines and Deviant Videos which features a broad selection of short moving image works, we conceived some films intended to be viewed full length in a cinema setting. From an expansive list across 1970s’s exploitation, Queer New Wave and contemporary cinema, we chose a selection of artist's moving image, feature films, shorts, fiction, documentary and experimental titles presented in four chapters that represent a slice of lesser-known queer cinema. Films that inspired and excited the Ridykes and filmmakers that have influenced them, collaborated with them or who they just think are "kind of cool".

Part Two. Do something to someone ... some classic queer films

NOWHERE Gregg Araki (1997) 85 min with THE YO-YO GANG GB Jones (1992) 30 min

Cert 18. £6

In the third part of Gregg Araki’s infamous Teen Apocalypse Trilogy we follow a bunch of college kids down a delicious rabbit hole, looking for love, salvation, and the meaning of life. Led by 90s alt-heartthrob James Duvall, the cast also boasts a ton of other soon-to-be Hollywood stars (Rose McGowan, Denise Richards, Ryan Philippe…and more!) delivering quotable lines in iconic looks. Nowhere is a key film of the influential New Queer Cinema, a glorious, sexy fairytale on acid, and a darkly comic, sexy existential crisis for the MTV generation.

Preceded by a short film The Yo-Yo Gang. Two lesbian rival gangs The Yo-Yo Gang and Skateboard Bitches start a gang war in this no-budget grainy Super 8 cocktail. Expect sex, fights and your favorite Riot Grrrl and Queercore Bands in this punk feminist bite of a short film.

Note: scenes of rape and sexual violence
