 Come to spend a decadent seaside afternoon at the former Cecil Hotel in Cliftonville, with the deckchair and spritz cocktail screening of the Lido classic  Death in Venice  and the display of the graphic book  Misadventures at Margate . Co-hosted by Little Joe and Blushing Pavilion.   Death in Venice  is a 1971 film by Luchino Visconti based on the 1912 novel by Thomas Mann. A music composer seeks personal space to re-find himself in the quiet location of a beach grand hotel, but finds illness in the city and an inability to escape because he obsesses with a teenager. The film could have easily been Edwardian Margate with Venice being the unsanitary London (society). The manic drama depicts the anxiety created by the morality of those times, and how one could have feared that the moments when one connects with desire and sensuality (the beauty of youth) would bring us to an end.   Misadventures at Margate, a legend of Jarvis’s Jetty  is a 1840s short story by Rev. Richard Harris Barham (1788-1845), aka Thomas Ingoldsby of Tappington Manor, with illustrations by Ernest Maurice Jessop. It tells about a chance encounter between a Mr. Simpkinson and a vulgar little boy, including a final moral.  LITTLE JOE, is a unique forum for the discussion of film around subjects of sexuality and gender within a queer historical context. Since launching in 2010, the magazine has quickly become an important place for stimulating dialogues, leading the way in queer analysis of cinema and providing a platform to celebrate films that inspire alternative discourse. Complimenting the publication with an ongoing film programme, presenting screenings and events both in the UK and internationally. Little Joe was featured in MoMA's Millenium Magazines, a survey of experimental art and design magazines published since 2000.  www.littlejoemagazine.com/about   Many thanks to Mark & Christopher Walker for use of the Cecil Hotel, and to Paraphernalia for the loan of the deckchairs.   https://www.facebook.com/events/1592257151008141/
