About Film: Cinema Mentiré & Romancero Books presents Lemebel (2019)

To celebrate LGBT+ History Month, Cinema Mentiré and Romancero Books present Lemebel (2019), by Joanna Reposi Garibaldi. A documentary capturing the life and legacy of the writer Pedro Lemebel.

Writer, Visual Artist and pioneer of the Queer movement in Latin America, Pedro Lemebel shook up conservative Chilean society during Pinochet’s dictatorship in the 1980s. Body, blood and fire were protagonists throughout his work. In the last eight years of his life, he attempted to perpetually rework them in a film he never finished. Taking an intimate and political journey through his risky performances on homosexuality and human rights, Lemebel culminates in a cinematic expression of yearning immortality.

Following the screening, join a panel discussion hosted by Romancero Books delving into Lemebel’s influence and literary journey. They will also showcase a selection of his works available for purchase at the event.

For a unique Valentine’s Day experience, come celebrate the life and art of Pedro Lemebel.

Cinema Mentiré is as an itinerant film club, that aims to bring classic and contemporary Latin American films to UK audiences, with the focus of challenging the stereotypes associated with the region. Find out more on Instragram.

Doors open at 19.00, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
