Join us for the Australian Premiere of the new documentary portrait of Genesis P-Orridge followed by a Q&A with the director.

Fresh from its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, Gay Chorus Deep South (2019) director David Charles Rodrigues’ latest film is an authorised documentary portrait of one of the most singular – yet profoundly plural – and tirelessly radical and influential artists of the 20th and 21st century, made during the final year of their life.

S/He Is Still Her/e interweaves archival footage of Genesis P-Orridge, the controversial performance artist who co-founded pioneering industrial music outfit Throbbing Gristle, with raw, reflective interviews conducted while wholly cognisant they hadn’t much longer to live. Expect appearances from William S. Burroughs – whose drawled advice to P-Orridge, “to short-circuit control”, became a lifelong credo – along with Brion Gyson, Timothy Leary and, of course, Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge, with whom Genesis realised the Pandrogyne art-and-life project, in which they ever strove to greater fuse their bodily selves and identities together, to create a transcendent “pandrogynous” whole.

Following the screening we will be joined in the cinema by the director of the film and special guest David Charles Rodrigues.
