QUEER DREAMS AND MONEY SHOTS

Goethe-Institut - October 12, 2005 - 7:00 PM

Total running time: 100 minutes

These shorts go beyond sex to explore the interior lives of LGBT Asians, who are often reduced by the larger society to just their sexuality. Dementia, fantasy, repression, and hope all collide in these films in ways that are sometimes funny and often poignant. From the off-beat comedy of MY GERMAN BOYFRIEND to the haunting lesbian eroticism of OUTSIDE, to the beautiful coming of age story in LAST FULL SHOW, these films explore many ways of dreaming queer.
