In QUEER TONGUES, ONCE WE WERE ISLANDS asks what it would mean for Queer people to have a language of our own. We work with Damiá, a constructed Queer language, as our lens. In our first full-length documentary film, we explore the ideas and potentials of new forms of Queer belonging and what it means to speak with brand new words.
QUEER TONGUES was filmed and edited as part of a #TakeCare research residency, supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media, and hosted by Theaterwerkstatt Pilkentafel, Flensburg.
