Queer Genius explores the remarkable lives and work of five queer female artists: Barbara Hammer, Eileen Myles, Black Quantum Futurism, Moor Mother, and Dynasty Handbag / Jibz Cameron. Deep, affectionate and intimate portraits resonate across generations as these critically acclaimed and notoriously radical artists overcome personal and political obstacles to find new ways to live, and share their visionary creative practices.

“The footage is raw, visceral and expansive, covering not only the innovative work of these artists but also capturing their reflections and vulnerabilities in beautiful ways. Watching the film, one is always keenly aware of the fact that these are personas that possess multiple layers of complexity. It is this capturing of personal lives that makes the film so engaging." - 'Defying Narratives in Queer Genius', Honeysuckle Magazine
