SQIFF 2019
SQIFF Shorts: Intimacies

Wed 2 October 2019

Touch, connection, sensuality, bonding. Sharing of solidarity, friendship, grief, and (com)passion.

This selection of short films from the UK, US, Iran, Brazil, and the Amazon trace intimacies between friends, family, communities, and lovers. The revolutionary potential of femme for femme relationships. Upholding trans and immigrant identities and memory across generations. Busting childhood isolation and fear of being queer. Leaving your life behind due to youthful yearning. A slow-paced and tactile assortment of stories embracing many different faces and places.
