Fallen Star a Short film about women

Poet and critic Jennifer Lee Tsai has produced the most poetically compelling script with Fallen Star, a hypnotic and beautiful piece about remembering & letting loose the body & spirit’s cultural connection to past ancestors and the liberation this brings.

Homotopia offer a fantastic range of free films to view

This ones by Amy Pennington and can be viewed from the 29 October. You also have the opportunity to join a one-off online creative workshop exploring memory, queer idols and representation taking part on Tuesday 3 November.

This is part of Queer Company, an arts project with young people in St Helens, produced by Heart of Glass with St Helens Council’s Arts in Libraries Programme (Cultural Hubs).
