Dogwoof Debuts Trailer for Agniia Galdanova’s vital, beautiful and atmospheric documentary ‘QUEENDOM’

Dogwoof has today debuted the UK trailer for Agniia Galdanova‘s (Out of Place) beautiful and atmospheric documentary Queendom.

The film had its world premiere at SXSW playing in competition and has since picked up the Next:Wave Award at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen and The Audience Award at The Camden Film Festival. The film also screened as part of the Documentary Competition at BFI London Film Festival.

Queendom follows Gena Marvin (she/her, non-binary), a queer artist from a small town in Russia who dresses in otherworldly costumes made from junk and tape and protests the government on the streets of Moscow.

Born and raised on the harsh streets of Magadan, a frigid outpost of the Soviet gulag, Gena is only 21. She stages radical performances in public that become a new form of art and activism. By doing that, she wants to change people’s perception of beauty and queerness and bring attention to the harassment of the LGBTQ+ community.

The performances – often dark, strange, evocative, and queer at their core – are a manifestation of Gena’s subconscious. But they come at a price.

The film will be released in UK cinemas and On Demand from 1 December, 2023 and we’ll leave you to view the riveting trailer below.
