Father Figure – In production - Bibi Fadlalla

Bibi Fadlalla



What does it mean to be young, black and gay in today’s world? Guilliano (26) is the founding father of The Kiki House of Angels, a Vogue dance community in Rotterdam. Most of its members are young black gay men who experience racism and marginalization in everyday life. This poetic collage film expresses their personal stories by combining verité scenes with Vogue dance sequences, graphic interludes and intimate interviews. Guilliano struggles with the harsh realities of life outside of his community. Vogueing offers a temporary escape. In order to survive in the outside world and be a role mode to his young son, Jereino (8), he feels he has to hide certain parts of his personality.
