Film Screening: I C E W O R M
Date: Saturday 20 March 2021, 2pm
Alex Billingham presents their first feature-length film I C E W O R M on March 20 2021. The film grew from an interest in Liquid data stores and how our collective heritage and identity might continue to exist in the far future. Using the basic structure of the water cycle as a foundation, the film considers how queer identities have survived through history and how will they continue into our future.
Alex’s interests in nuclear technology and queer culture bleed into the liquid texture of the film, irradiating every droplet frame by frame. The title refers to Project Iceworm, the secret US nuclear bunker in Greenland exposed by receding ice.
