Event Description

The Hamilton College F.I.L.M. (Forum for Image and Language in Motion) series presents "De Profundis" (1997) with director Lawrence Brose.

“De Profundis” is a reference to Oscar Wilde’s famous letter from "Reading Gaol" and Brose’s film is a revisiting of Wilde’s incarceration, from within a montage of imagery of radical gay performances “queered” by Brose’s complex process for colorizing the imagery that can require as many as 24 separate steps per frame sequence.

This idea of queers and the masks society forces them to adopt is also one of the driving themes of Brose’s 65-minute experimental film, a surreal exploration of homo identity.
