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.

Damn These Heels Film Festival is proud to present the world premiere of True Mother by Rotem Gabay.

As frustration mounts in a bitter custody battle between two women, the war ends in an abduction. Shedding light on the privileges of heterosexual co-parents and lending the audience a perspective into the complexities of queer parents navigating the legal systems in Israel, True Mother is the story of motherly love pushed to the brink. Films like this remind us of the nuances and the battles of gay parenthood.
