SQIFF 2019 SQIFF Shorts: Come Out Fighting

Thu 3 October 2019

SQIFF Shorts Come Out Fighting

Pushed into corners through marginalisation and oppression, the characters in these short films come out fighting for their bodily autonomy, rights, and liberation.

YaliniDream performs a poem of refugee/migrant love for self and the world. Artist Liberty Antonia Sadler uses poetry to celebrate larger bodies in a fatphobic society. In Ponyboi, an intersex runaway and sex worker finds self-redemption and love. The Wind on your Skin sees a young Namibian woman fighting back after her girlfriend is murdered for being lesbian. Eyes explores moving through the world as a gender non-conforming person choosing between being visible versus being safe. And BLACKN3SS dives into the journey of black queer youth in São Paulo.
