FILM + TALK: Pinkwashing Exposed in Studio/K
Director Dean Spade and producer Amy Mahardy show the inspiring story of campaigns against Pinkwashing and Palestine solidarity activism in Pinkwashing Exposed. ¨Pinkwashing¨ is a term activists have coined for when countries engaged in terrible human rights violations, promote themselves as ¨gay friendly¨ to improve their public image. The country most famous for using this strategy is Israel, using it as part of a rebranding campaign for the last decade. Pinkwashing Exposed examines how Pinkwashing works and what local activists do in order to fight back.
After the documentary there will be a follow-up discussion with Yasmin Ahmed, who is part of the organisation Studenten voor Rechtvaardigheid in Palestina (SRP). Both screening and follow-up discussion are in English.
