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.
Queendom will be released in UK and Irish cinemas plus On Demand from 1st December.
