Francesca, played by Alexandra Turshen, arrives in town to complicate and stimulate both their lives.
Beyond The Mirror’s Gaze (2013, Canada, 4 minutes, animated, Director: Iris Moore): A mind-blowing, gender-bending cartoon involving the swapping of sexual roles and equipment.
Playing It Straight (2013, USA, 20 minutes, Director: Michael Kenney): A farce that starts in the aftermath of a bachelor party. Everything that can go askew does on one man’s journey to his wedding and marriage.
Lilting (2014, United Kingdom,91 minutes, Director: Hong Khaou): In this official selection of the Sundance, Berlin and London film festivals, the sad tale is told of a Chinese Cambodian mother, played by Pei-pei Cheng, who is in mourning over her son’s dying. Her son was a gay man still in the closet. His partner, portrayed by Ben Whishaw, whom she thought was a platonic friend, comes to visit. With neither speaking the other’s language (on several levels) they manage to communicate and remember the love they feel for the one who has passed.
