About Quiet Heroes Screening

Listed Under Film Events

Quiet Heroes documents one doctor’s fight against stigma, shame, and ignorance through the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis in the heartland of America’s west. This screening is part of Glasgow Zine Library’s ‘Making History’ film programme, which celebrates film under the theme of social justice. The screenings will be taking place once a month from August to October 2019 at CCA.

Glasgow Zine Library (glasgowzinelibrary.com) is an archive and library based in the Southside of Glasgow. It acts as a growing archive of self-published works, with an inviting and accessible area of reading in the space, as well as running a year-long programme of events to celebrate the ethos of Do It Yourself (DIY) culture.

SQIFF (Scottish Queer International Film Festival) (sqiff.org)have been holding an annual festival in Glasgow alongside providing year-round events across various locations since 2015. Their goal is to get people watching, talking about, and making more queer films.
