all fruits ripe Presents: Homeland

Candice Nembhard

29 February 2024, 7:30 - 9:30pm

Join us for Homeland: a night of films curated by Candice Nembhard for all fruits ripe series. 

Homeland brings together the work of directors exploring Germany’s regressive attitudes towards racism, class and ethnicity through the lens of queer relationships, migration, housing and grief. The works ask us to reconsider the liberal label of modern Germany by digging into its past and combing through the details.


The evening will include discussions with select filmmakers and producers from the screened films.
This edition of afr series is hosted by Vivid Projects and is part of LGBT+ History Month.
