COME CLOSER by Thiemi Higashi

Thiemi Higashi is a Brazilian-Japanese multimedia artist and photographer based in Amsterdam. She graduated from the course of Fine Arts at the HKU in Utrecht in 2018 and is debuting with her first film "Maravilhosa" - which has been shown in both art and film contexts including: Best of Graduates at Ron Mandos Gallery, Cacao Fabriek in Helmond and Queer City - Screening Brazil Festival at Filmhuis Cavia. 

In her works over the last two years, Thiemi Higashi has carefully examined human contact, by painting over photos of fellow students who don't talk to her, by setting up Skype photo shoots with random people from around the world and by writing a manual on “How to be accepted in the Netherlands from an exotic point of view”.  

What is this strange new world we live in, where all cultures can meet, but we seem to communicate less and less? A world where technology has the power to bring us all together, but we can stay anonymous. A world where we favour our online community over our offline world. A world where friends that have passed away live on in the voice-messages on our phones. A world where it's easier than ever to make new friends who live half way around the globe. How do we become close to one another in such a world, and remain authentic?  .

Jaime recorded everything, even his own death. From him, her daughter received more than one hundred hours of home videos and many uncertainties. Because as many people of his generation, Jaime was a clandestine person. But in his case, probably two times clandestine.

The images recorded by Jaime, resignify to give place to questions around desire, sexuality, family and freedom. "Silence is a Falling Body" is the trip to a intimate and filial past, but also to a political one.

Three speakers from the queer, trans & migrant community:

Bo Hanna, Tirsa With and a delegate from TranScreen reflect on this years highlights and setbacks in queer activism, the status of allies and adversary’s and discuss whether the very diverse queer community of the Netherlands is represented by the right people in the right places. 

IQMF hosted this talk for the first time in 2017 and has decided to make this a recurring discussion due to its continuing relevancy.

Tickets €5. Free if you visit any film during IQMF.

#ifyoulove activism & new narratives 

From left to right:
JNM (The Naked MC), Bo Hanna, tirsa with, Plette ter Veld

JNM (the Naked MC)
In the magical year of 1983, the summer child of Surinamese descent known as JNM (the Naked MC) claimed her space on Planet Earth.

At an early age she already knew that the spotlight is her peace. Dancing, singing and acting in front of the mirror became her daily routine.

Up till today this ritual hasn’t changed much, even though her mirror is often more replaced for stages like Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam, Uitmarkt, IDFA, Kunstbende, Amsterdam Roots Festival and Milkshake Festival. The list adds up as this all-round artist takes herself places she dwells in. JNM is a pleasure to the ear, eye & soul.

The force is strong with this one.

JNM the Naked MC - It’s a Feeling”  

Bo Hanna

Bo Hannah was born in Sweden, has Coptic-Egyptian roots and grew up in the Netherlands. He studied French and Middle-Eastern Studies at the University of Amsterdam. Born out of his own struggles with identity, ethnicity, sexuality and the pressure to conform, he started writing about gender, sexuality and ethnicity in an intersectional way. His main purpose is to offer a new narrative that encourages people to love whomever they want to love. He also wants to offer an alternative for the dominant view we tend to have in Western media, where diversity themes are only promoted as ultimate Western.

Jo-Ann with

Jo-Ann With is a femme queer, curator, product design student and co-founder of the art collective for and by womxn of color: ANTI-BODIES. 

Her experience with dealing with manic depression and anxiety led to her becoming pro radical selfcare and pro the right to sometimes just “exist” in your poc body. She also fights for the emancipation of queers of color and is also demanding a seat at the table for those who identify as femme.

Plette ter Veld

Plette studied fine art at the Utrecht School of Arts and a few years of Cultural Anthropology at Utrecht University. Now Plette works at Utrecht University as an IT professional. Along with Ms. Tobi from Berlin Plette creates large steel sculptures, Plette acts as a performer and has a long history as queer-, AIDS- and gender-activist. For years Plette organizes festivals and all kinds of art and queer events. In the distant past Plette (Paul) even toured with a band through the Netherlands and in that time was a radio producer as well. Although Plette has been a gender activist for years and “he” actually is a huge trans-in-the-closet, Plette is one of the founders of TranScreen.
