Sarah looks at herself in the mirror. She’s wearing a colorful shirt with designs in blue, orange, and purple.

Not Quite That

‘Not Quite That’ follows 57-year-old Sarah, a butch lesbian predisposed to breast cancer.

Sarah discusses the implications of a mastectomy as a butch presenting person. She contemplates if people would perceive her as transmasculine and how that would make her feel.

Her long-term close friends listen attentively and help her process the situation. The love and support shared by this group of old friends is heartwarming. A feel-good film for sure.

This film is followed by two shorts. Director Leo Torre of The Ship of Theseus will join us to chat about short filmmaking and the importance of queer/trans friendships.

Curated by Nat Lall.

Content Warnings:
- Discussion of cancer diagnosis, surgery, gender dysphoria, body image, transphobia;
- Depictions of pregnancy, nudity, drains, hospitalisation.
