Olivia, a Filipina trans woman in New York (played by director Isabel Sandoval), struggles to make ends meet. She works as a carer to Olga, an elderly Russian woman, while brokering a deal with her sketchy boyfriend to get a Green Card. When Olga’s grandson, the handsome but boozy Alex, shows up, things get more complicated and attractions begin to stir. The situation is hard as it is: will Alex’s macho attitude make things worse?

IF IT WERE LOVE

 

If It Were Love straddles our perceptions of what is real and fiction, staged and spontaneous, and crucially, the truth in those euphoric moments when the BPM matches your heart rate.

 

In a time when we are still denied the thrill of the sweat-soaked dance floor, this film takes on a poignant sense of loss and wanting. A delirious high. Catch this one in the cinema if you can.

Presented in partnership with the French Embassy in Ireland

CICADA

 

Ben has done a good job keeping his guard up. Through casual encounters with men and women, the most they get from him is the remnants of pillow talk as he puts on his socks. But after meeting the handsome Sam while browsing some books, the two form a bond far beyond what Ben is used to giving another person. Sam encourages Ben to share things about his past, slowly chipping away at the walls he has built. Will Sam’s honesty give Ben courage to find his own?

Like our central hero, Cicada is disarmingly sexy, but as it uncoils we explore the all-too-universal question of just what do we reveal to our partners in a relationship, and more importantly, what are we forced to reveal to ourselves?

 

Contains themes intended for a mature audience.
