TRANS AND GENDERQUEER SHORTS
Monday 5th August
Light House Cinema
For the first year, the title of this programme has changed to reflect the limitlessness of queer identity, as these trans and gender- non-conforming shorts reflect the plurality and diversity of the stories that exist in the world. A programme of films that are once singular and experimental, while at the same time lovingly traditional and universal - the full richness of pleasure and pain that comes with living freely in a challenging world.
