DEFINE GENDER: VICTORIA SIN (2017)
Directed by regular collaborator, Amrou Al-Kadhi, for NOWNESS' Define Gender series.
Whilst many London drag queens have dismissed politics for social capital, Victoria Sin's drag constantly challenges, provokes, and rejuvenates the city’s queer spaces. This film is an experimental documentary about how Victoria unapologetically takes up space when they are in drag. They give spotlight and agency to the daily labours of femininity that are invisible and policed. Our film opens the space for viewers to experience the transformative power of Victoria’s drag, positioning this queer unicorn warrior right where they belong—in cinematic grandeur, with a gaze that they own.
