Congratulations are in order for DEGANZ member Lula Cucchiara whose feature documentary film, Fiona Clark: Unafraid, is about to have its international premiere at Inside Out Toronto 2SLGBTQ+ Film Festival (May 26 – June 5).
Directed by Lula and edited by Anastasia Doniants, Fiona Clark: Unafraid brings attention to notable queer photographer Fiona Clark and her work, which captured the burgeoning gay liberation movement and vibrant queer scene in 1970’s New Zealand. Giving visibility to the LGBTQI+ community, dismantling prejudice and fighting for equality through the lens of her camera would cement her as one of New Zealand’s historically groundbreaking photographers.
Member Shailesh Prajapati was the film’s assistant editor. Well done to everyone involved in the making of Fiona Clark: Unafraid!
