Les Invisibles is a 2012 French documentary directed by Sébastien Lifshitz. Les Invisibles gives a face to the unseen and a voice to the inaudible, spinning a sedate, respectful account of the gay rights movement as experienced by its foot soldiers. Sébastien Lifshitz lines up his elderly revolutionaries and intercuts their memories with archive footage from France's dark age, when Paris Match ran inflammatory headlines, placards clamoured for the death penalty and homosexuality was treated as a psychiatric disorder. The film's subjects often emerge as reluctant activists, forced by circumstance to defend their dignity and fight for acceptance. Today, we find them chattering in farmhouse kitchens, at work in their gardens or sailing on the Med. Living well, Lifshitz implies, is the best revenge (The Guardian, 2013).

The screening, organised by ReShape and the Cinema Museum is the ninth screening of The VITO Project, a series of free monthly screenings bringing generations of LGBTs together to provide an alternative space to mix, watch films and share ideas.
