Presented by LGBTQ+ film series The Queens’ Vernacular, with special introduction by series programmer Chris Vargas.
Torrey Pines is a stop-motion animated feature film by director Clyde Petersen. Based on a true story, the film is a queer punk coming-of-age tale, taking place in Southern California in the early 1990’s.
Raised by a schizophrenic single mother, Petersen’s life story unfolds in a series of baffling and hallucinated events. With a mother fueled by hallucinations of political conspiracy and family dysfunction, twelve-year-old Petersen is taken on a cross-country adventure that will forever alter the family as they know it.

The Storyteller’s Seasonal was established provide a supportive venue where the creatives, filmmakers and storytellers can practice their craft and display their work, with the basic prompts of a theme and a prop as their challenge parameters.

All levels of digital visual storytelling welcome, and over the last two years we have received an eclectic mix of films from our local creative community.

It’s been difficult to hold such events in light of the

Coronavirus pandemic, but we realized that this is a perfect time to share some of their stories with the community at large.

We have set the price of this screening to sliding scale so that viewer’s may watch it for free and still leave room to support Pickford Film Center as it supports the effort of local filmmakers through events like this and others if you should choose to do so!

Please enjoy The Storyteller’s Seasonal’s Isolation Compilation!
