A selection of short films about LGBTQ+ self-love, relationships, and communities. These contemporary shorts span various genres and identities; the program tells stories including searching for love in the French countryside, visiting a dreamlike diner full of doppelgängers, experiencing a majestic cotillion ball, and hearing first-hand accounts of gay history at the site of one of America's greatest tragedies. These films deal with themes of trust, loneliness, belonging, presentation, and self-actualization.

Total Run Time: 87 minutes

This program will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

A repressed person, living in a city, confronts his internal struggle as it bleeds through into his public persona, creating a collision amongst external social norms, suppressed identity, and the surrealistic worlds of a distressed psyche.
