Trans Film: Hanky Code
Before Internet dating and hookup apps, The Handkerchief code was largely used by gay men in the 1970s to distinguish sexual preferences and fetishes in gay clubs and on the streets of places like San Francisco and New York. In HANKY CODE, San Francisco's queer experimental film collective Periwinkle Cinema brings together queer and trans filmmakers across a spectrum of genres, styles, genders, and locations to dissect the code in this epic anthology feature comprised of 25 short films. Each filmmaker or filmmaking team tells a story of a different color/fetish of the code. Films range from narrative to experimental to erotic and animated, with many films redefining the traditional code with colors, patterns, and fetishes according to the creative interpretation of the artist. Audience members are invited to flag their hankies at the screening.
