Our Dance of Revolution

Join Cinema Politica Concordia and Massimadi Montréal for the Quebec premiere of Our Dance of Revolution. This event is part of Black History Month. Two protagonists from the film, activist Douglas Stewart and writer Makeda Silvera, will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion.

This beautiful, vibrant and rousing film celebrates the resilience of Toronto's Black queer community across a span of four decades. The film is a testament to the courage, tenacity and creativity they utilized to prevail against the forces of marginalization.

The Massimadi Festival is co-presenting this screening. Admission is by donation — $5 to $10 suggested. The venue is wheelchair accessible. Childcare is available upon request with 24 hours’ notice. Please email Cinema Politica for more information.

Our Dance of Revolution
Phillip Pike / Canada / 2019 / 102 '

Our Dance of Revolution tells the story of how Black queer folks in Toronto faced every adversity — from invisibility to police brutality — and rose up to become a vibrant, triple-snap-fierce community. Capturing first-person accounts across a span of four decades, this feature-length documentary is more than a previously untold oral history, more than a reclamation of unsung people and events.
