Queer Genius is a creative documentary featuring fine artist portraits of QPOC & GLBTQ experimental artists: Barbara Hammer, Eileen Myles, Black Quantum Futurism, Moor Mother, and Jibz Cameron/Dynasty Handbag. The film examines each artist’s creative life, personal challenges, and asks the question “what is genius?” Each subject provides a unique and personal perspective on new ways to think about and view the concept of “genius” from a
female, fine arts perspective discussing and preserving queer female avant-garde legacies across generation.
