Cinema for diversity
Film screening on the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia 2021 (IDAHOT)
The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia was created in 2004 to draw the attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBTIQ people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions. In the run up to IDAHOT (17 May) join our #Renew4Equality MEPs for a discussion about the role of cinema and culture in raising awareness around LGBTIQ realities and promoting diversity.
'Cuban Heel Shoes' tells the story of two teenage boys in a marginal neighbourhood of Madrid, in a place hostile to each of their desires. With serious family problems, and surrounded by an aggressive, macho, homophobic environment, they must lead a double life to hide their love relationship and their passion for flamenco dance.
