I Am Other
I Am Other
Virtual Realities. A film fest all about the premiere buzzword of the 1990s? Not quite. The queer topical film week gathers 11 films from all over the globe and concerns itself with existing stories and “other” realities.
Regretters (Dec 3, 21:30) portrays two people doing the best they can with their lives, given one abiding regret – their sex change operation. It is preceded by the excellent short film "I Am Other (Candy & Me)".
Sue de Beer’s Hans & Grete (Dec 5, 21:30) studies the media’s misdirected obsession with teen violence in America and is substantially more than a black-and-white afterthought on Columbine.
Ester Martin Bergsmark’s excellent She Male Snails (Dec 7, 21:30) has been highlighted by Exberliner before, so if you haven’t seen it, here’s your chance.
In-person director Q&As accompany the vast majority of the program. All films showing either in English or with English subs (except closing film To Die Like a Man; German subs).
