THE ODYSSEY is a film and book collaboration curated by Bernadine Mellis and Andrea Lawlor, featuring work by mostly queer, trans, and women artists, retelling Homer's ancient epic of the aftermath of war. Almost half of the 75 contributors are from Philly.

Fun facts: The book was designed by Philly book artist Courtney Dailey. Writers Samuel R. Delany, Keith Waldrop, and Brian Evenson all appear in the film. Poet Eileen Myles made her first film for this project, as did Whitney Biennial star photographer Zoe Strauss. Painter Xylor Jane, known for her math art, contributed both a drawing and her first published short story.

Admission: Free! With free donated snacks!
