Friday March 11th 21:45h / Sunday March 13th 19:45h
From March 10 – 20 2022, the 25th Roze Filmdagen will take place at the Ketelhuis, the Westergasfabriek & online. Friday March 11th and Sunday March 13th, we will co-host Lyle Kash’s film DEATH & BOWLING.
In this fictional meta-critique on trans representation, a transgender actor struggles with what it means to be seen after the beloved captain of his lesbian bowling league dies and a mysterious stranger shows up at the funeral.
One of the first long-form cinematic works to feature an almost entirely transgender cast in both transgender and non-transgender roles, and made by a mostly transgender crew, Death and Bowling is a landmark in the history of experimental and LGBTQ cinema.
Reflecting on the film, writer/director Lyle Kash notes, “This film was community-driven in the truest sense. In 2018 hundreds of artists responded to my call for transgender talent to work as cast and crew on this historic film.”
