Over Our Dead Bodies

Originally broadcast as part of the OUT series on Channel 4 in 1991, Stuart Marshall’s film documents the origins of the AIDS activist movement in the US and the UK, and the gay community’s growing anger and frustration with the inadequate response to the epidemic. While the film celebrates the real successes of this movement, it also examines the problematic debates within it concerning democracy, representation, power differentials, as well as the relationship between homophobia, racism and sexism.

London-based artist Conal McStravick, along with researchers Ed Webb-Ingall and Laura Guy will introduction the film and hold a post-screening Q&A.
