Looking Awry: Don't Look At Me That Way

Sun 24 September 2017

Hedi is the new neighbour of Iva, who is raising her daughter Sophia by herself. The two women start a relationship and Iva is desperately in love. However, when Iva's estranged father appears, Hedi is strongly attracted to him. Director and star Uisenma Borchu crafts an enigmatic tale about the pitfalls of monogamous expectations, breaking free of taboos, and existing as a bisexual woman of colour in a straight, white society.

With an introduction by Jacob Engelberg, programmer of Brighton-based queer film strand, Eyes Wide Open Cinema. Part of Looking Awry: Representing Bisexual* Desires On Screen.
