New Film – Queer Delight by Alexis Maxwell

a still from an animated film shows a green and pink galaxy overlaid with a white cut out image of a face with wiggly lines on it. The person has huge wavy hair illustrated by white lines which spread across the screen. Lilac text at the bottom of the screen says ‘its that presence you feel all the time’

We are thrilled launch our new film, Queer Delight by artist Alexis Maxwell. We commissioned this film after an open call this summer. 

Queer Delight is an animated poem inspired by conversations with LGBTQ+ people. It explores and celebrates how delight is experienced in the queer community through mesmerising visuals, music and text. 

We’re also happy to be able to offer an audio described version of the film too. Audio description has been provided by Adedamola Bajomo. Just scroll down to play the audio described version.

Alexis Maxwell is a contemporary storyteller based across the North. Using a blend of text, tech and animation they explore ways of interpreting everyday experiences into creative oral history. Self-taught animator and long-time fan of all things spoken word; they draw from interdisciplinary practices to breathe life into poetry.

They love art that embraces a sense of self and community; exploring how diverse voices and experiences can come together to overlap and intersect. But most importantly they love the pursuit of joy and all the challenges that come with it. You can follow Alexis on Instagram here.

We hope you enjoy the film as much as we do, and it brings you plenty delight!
