Description

Artists Hilary Harp and Suzie Silver present Over the Rainbow, a curated screening of queer and experimental shorts for kids of all ages.

The Drag Queen Story Hour will be hosted by Miss Nature of Drag Story Hour AZ. After Drag Queen Story Hour, enjoy a screening designed for gender non-conforming kids, queer families, and their allies. Over the Rainbow presents nine short films on difference-affirming, gender-variance, and anti-bullying themes. The selected films for Over the Rainbow are moving, hilarious, beautiful, and inventive visions of a genderfluid world. As finely wrought as they are entertaining, the films in Over the Rainbow will delight kids and parents alike.

Since 2003, Hilary Harp and Suzie Silver have collaborated on videos and mixed media installations that celebrate their shared love of science fiction, camp sensibilities and performance art. Their videos have screened at over one hundred festivals on five continents and are distributed by the Video Data Bank. Their ongoing collaboration, Fairy Fantastic! is a fairy and folk tale video series for gender non-conforming kids of all ages. Harp is an Associate Professor at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.  Silver is a Professor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
