Film Info


The 18th celebration of queer cinema at AAFF spotlights recent experimental films with LGBTQ themes, featuring reflections on being out while feeling the strong urge to reenter the closet; a performative exploration of gender; intersections of memory, identity, and queer desire; the oldest fun park in Beirut; an alternative mode of retrieving and disseminating a trans past; two young men who try to figure out their relationship; and trivial histories of the crumbling infrastructure of Memphis, Tennessee. Programmed by Sean Donovan.
