In a world where fact and fiction are increasingly blurred, and nothing seems too farcical, too extreme or too personal to be out of bounds, join Clementine Ford, Bri Lee and Miles Merrill for an evening of storytelling and conversation with Lex Hirst about the controversial thoughts they still hold dear.

Screen Queens is the feminist and queer film podcast and movie night run by Hot Chicks with Big Brains - and we have found a new forever home - thank you Metro Arts!!!

The first of the next three films we're showing this year is: Diary of a Teenage Girl.

1970s San Francisco. Fifteen-year-old cartoonist Minnie is spurred by her sexual awakening to become involved with her mother’s boyfriend. Lush, funny, and sometimes so close-to-the-bone, the film plays out issues around adolescence, family and female sexuality without judgement. Too few people saw this film in 2015 so we’re excited for you all to see it now.

The second of the next three films we're showing this year is: Lawrence Anyways.

Spanning the 1980s and 1990s, Xavier Dolan’s queer opus intertwines the story of Frédérique and Laurence’s love with Laurence’s transition. Operatic, flamboyant, baroque and rebellious, the film is an unflinching yet celebratory telling of a transgender woman’s life. The film breaks through and away from a standard “issues” approach, and we’re proud to show a film about people, not just about issues.

Director: Xavier Dolan
Duration: 2hr 48mins
Rating: Unrated

The final film we're showing this year is: Spirited Away.

From the legendary Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki comes the enthralling and frightening story of ten-year-old Chichiro’s entry into the spirit world. Chichiro loses her parents, her childhood, her freedom and name, but she gains a sense of herself as a young woman. We think the film is one of the greatest, strangest, and most sensitive stories of girlhood around.

Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Duration: 2hr 5mins
