“Our history was disappearing as quickly as we were making it.” It is from this observation that American lesbian activists Deborah Edel and Joan Nestle co-founded The Lesbian Herstory Archive. With determination, humor and a homemade shelf, they have collected and archived what is to date the world’s largest collection of lesbian history.

Today, the archive faces many challenges: passing the torch to the younger generation, adapting to new technologies, and helping to reinvent lesbian activism at a time in American history when some of the movement’s victories are being questioned. The "Archivettes" tells their story and how they succeeded in fighting against the invisibilisation of lesbians for more than 40 years!

After the film, a meeting with Charline Herbin and Mathilde Messina, whose master’s thesis focused on the history of lesbians in Brussels and presentation of the Fonds Suzan Daniel by Bart Hellinck .

Jose Enrique Tiglao, 2019, 99

14-year-old Adam has been living in a bubble as a rowdy, marginalised, withdrawn but creative, passionate and curious teen. When puberty hits and blood suddenly stains his shorts, his desires and identity emerge, as he finds himself facing the unknown, whilst his religious parents, doctrinal physicians and even his free-spirited friend battle with their own prejudices. Metamorphosis is the first Philipino film to focus on the experience of being an intersex person. This coming-of-age film addresses the topic with poetry, and offers a vibrant, realistic and sensual immersion in the universe of this terribly endearing teenager.
