Screenings:

May 31st, 17:00-19:30 PT: Out in Shorts Film Discussion Group

Kick off the semester in film with a screening and discussion on four short films telling a range of queer stories!

I Like Girls

Synopsis: I Like Girls is a Canadian short animated film, directed by Diane Obomsawin and released in 2016. Based on Obomsawin's 2014 graphic novel On Loving Women, the film features anthropomorphic animal characters acting out stories of lesbian same-sex attraction.

Trigger warnings: No triggers.

First Stories: Two Spirited

Synopsis: This short tells the empowering story of Rodney "Geeyo" Poucette's struggle against prejudice in the Indigenous community as a Two-Spirited person. After registering as a dancer in the Kamloopa Powwow under the Jingle Dress category (normally reserved for women), Geeyo is deeply humiliated by a misguided Elder.

Trigger warnings: Colonization, discussion of substance abuse.

It's Not You, It's Not Me

Synopsis: A raw exploration of a mixed relationship between an asexual man (Lee Shorten from Man in the High Castle & AMC's The Terror) and sexual woman (Jaymee Mak from Supergirl), and their struggle to reconcile their needs with their love for each other.

Trigger warnings: Sexual acts (potential to be read as coercive).

tender

Synopsis: As San Francisco's gig economy grows, so does the city's need for housing. The Tenderloin district, a historically black and queer neighborhood, becomes prime real estate for the city's tech workers. Cookie, Janetta, and Ronjah bring you into their world as they fight San Francisco's housing crisis.

Trigger warnings: Discussions of substance abuse, gentrification, homelessness, incarceration.
