Midnight Frontier

Creature of Peter van Langen

The documentary Midnight Frontier tells the story of activists that stand at the frontline of LGBTQ+ activism in Georgia.They recount their experience during the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHOT), in which they were assaulted by people partaking in the Georgian Orthodox Church’s ’Family Purity Day’, of the same day. The nightclub Club Bassiani forms 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 through dance.
