A new film exploring rave culture and queer identity needs your help to fund its release

A new short film exploring underground rave subculture, sexual discovery, queer identity and more is seeking fundraisers to help fund its production.

The short, titled Seawolf, is written and set to be directed by Chris Sitaridis. Inspired by Sitaridis’ love Detroit techno, Seawolf borrowed its title from 1992 cut. Likewise the film’s soundtrack is set to be comprised a selection tracks.

According to Seawolf’s page the movie’s aesthetics are inspired by, “the work British artist Paul Graham as depicted in the “End an Age”, a series youth portraits taken in clubs and bars between 1996 and 1998 that captures the threshold moments that mark the end adolescence, the small slice time between youthful indulgence and the emerging awareness adult responsibilities.”

With the film’s team adding “Our multicultural mission bringing the early 90s rave vibe and cultural aspects that period into life, seen through a human – centred story that encourages diversity, remains strong and we are proud to keep contributing to the queer and rave community.”

With an aim to begin shooting in September 2018, the crew are hoping to raise £7,500 in donations to cover production costs both during film and in post-production and distribution to add to a recently-awarded production grant.
