We will be showing a short doc followed by a full-length feature.
An exploration of family, immigration and language through the voices of five queer and trans Asian-Americans from New York City. The subjects share stories about coming out to their families, and in doing so, shed light on the complicated histories that have shaped these intimate and personal relationships. This moving short is an illuminating patchwork documentary exploring family and culture through the personal stories of a diverse panoply of LGBTQ individuals.

Between the Shades (84m)
Filmmaker Jill Salvino interviews a diverse group of queer individuals and seeks to put faces to the letters that make up the LGBTQIA+ community, explore how those letters have evolved, and what they mean to different people. It’s an exploration of self-definition and self-expression, and our journeys to find our truest selves.
