Queer adventurers embark on journeys of self-discovery, healing, truth-seeking, activism - and a fantasy quest!
Egúngún (Masquerade) Dir: Olive Nwosu (she/her) - 14:10, Nigeria: In search of healing, a young woman returns home, to Nigeria, the country of her birth. Hornbeam Dir: Mark Pluck (he/him) - 16:50, UK: Under the cover of darkness, two strangers bond over a shared secret. But how well do they really know each other? Now, Daphne Dir: Johann G. Louis (he/him) - 21:10, France: A young woman, Daphne, drives through the desert landscape. It’s nighttime. She meets people who seem to know her without being able to give her a name. Who is Daphne? Could it be that a ghost has walked in the footsteps of her past? Tell Me Something I Don't Know Dir: Neal Suresh Mulani (he/him) - 15:26, US: On his 25th birthday, Cary brings his friends to the desert and requests one gift: for them to list everything they hate about him. A reckoning ensues. Flores del Otro Patio Dir: Jorge Cadena (he/him) - 15:00, Switzerland: In the north of Colombia, a group of queer activists use extravagant performative actions to denounce the disastrous exploitation by the country's largest coal mine. KingDom Dir: Joanna Vymeris (she/her) - 23:23, UK: Six drag kings embark on a moustache curling adventure to steal the Monument to Masculinity, a solid gold urinal, in a mad-cap attempt to keep their gentlemen's club KingDom afloat in times of economic peril. Unsurprisingly, the mission doesn't quite go according to plan.
