Midnight Frontier tells the story of activists that stand at the frontline of LGBTQI+ activism in Georgia. They recount their experience during the International Day Against Homophobia, in which they were assaulted by thousands of anti-gay activists, led by the Georgian Orthodox Church. Club Bassiani, and their queer nights Horoom Nights, form their fort of resistance to homophobic violence. For them, nightlife in Georgia is not an escape, but a way to resist. A fight that is not contained within the walls of the club, uniting friends and enemies. Directors Peter van Langen and Iris Anne van der Aar will attend the screening.
