SQIFF 2018: Pulse

A gay disabled teenage boy chooses to swap his body for that of a non-disabled cisgender woman, seeing this as the only way he can be loved. A deeply personal film written by and starring queer disabled filmmaker Daniel Monks, Pulse explores thematic questions such as how much our bodies shape who we are, where the line is between compromising for love and changing yourself to be loved, and why we fall in love with the people we do. Pulse is a parable for young people, queer people, disabled people; but also for anyone who has ever struggled with their body, their appearance, their sexuality, their desires, and essentially themselves.
