Queer family, chosen and otherwise, constitute the connection between the films that fall in the Apples & Trees program. Parents and their children navigate the complexities of coming out, staying out, and living out in this collection of shorts desiccated to the space between generations.

In Brazil, tragedy strikes Marilene’s family when her daughter, Roberta, goes missing. Mounting a mountainous effort, Marilene searches for her trans daughter. As a science-fiction allegory unfolds, light is shed on the experience of existing as a trans person of color. 

This film explores the profundity, depth, and persistence of the love and acceptance a mother has for her daughter. 

Unliveable has played Sundance Film Festival, BFI Flare, and more.
