Marc Almond

Join Marc Almond in conversation with Anton Mazurov after the screening of his chosen favourite gay film Victim.

An extraordinary performance by Dirk Bogarde grounds this intense, sobering indictment of early-sixties social intolerance and sexual puritanism. Bogarde plays Melville Farr, a married barrister who is one of a large group of closeted London men who become targets of a blackmailer. Basil DeardenТs unmistakably political taboo buster was one of the first films to address homophobia head-on, a cry of protest against British laws forbidding homosexuality.

"ItТs a pleasure for me to be able to participate in this event. The fact you can hold this event is a good sign and I hope a sign that Gay history and culture is finding a place in Russia."

Marc Almond
