The Microcosm (Director: Joe Ingham)
London, 1966. Homosexuality between men is still criminalized. Women don’t fare any better. A woman who is exposed as a lesbian can expect to lose her job, her lodgings, and her family. It is a tough, dangerous and nerve-wracking existence. But in one subterranean corner of Chelsea, society’s rules don’t apply. The Gateways club offers a safe haven for women to dance, express themselves and love who they want. Or does it? English poet Maureen Duffy published “The Microcosm” in 1966, turning her probing gaze to London’s first and infamous lesbian hangout. In this searingly honest work, based on her own experience, Maureen examines if this gay bar, and those like it, really offered the freedom its patrons craved. Fifty-six years later Maureen’s words are brought vividly to life by two-time Oscar winner Glenda Jackson. Jackson, along with director Joe Ingham, draw striking parallels between the past and the present and explore the uncomfortable paradox that exists within queer spaces.
