Join us tomorrow night for the first in the Gendered Subjects: Queer Screens Film Series

Velvet Goldmine (1998)

Directed by Todd Haynes (Carol, I’m Not There, Far From Heaven), one of the most widely lauded directors to come out of what B. Ruby Rich termed the New Queer Cinema movement, Velvet Goldmine (1998, winner of the Cannes Best Artistic Contribution Award) centres around the glitter-filled, androgynous era of glam rock. It follows the journey of journalist Arthur Stuart (Christian Bale) as he looks backwards to find out what happened to David Bowie-like superstar Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and fellow punk rocker Curt Wild (Ewan McGregor), and features music by T-Rex, Roxy Music, Brian Eno and Suede, as well as appearances by Placebo.
