FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

Yeh Freedom Life

Dir. Priya Sen

Yeh Freedom Life tries to keep up with its protagonists, as they manuever erratic and unpredictable love. They are surrounded by a cacophonous city; they are in love with other women. They dream of ‘freedom lives’, away from family and society’s constant scrutiny.

SHORT DOCUMENTARY

Translucent

Dir. Azzan Quick
16 min., Unites States, 2019

Translucent is a self portrait of a filmmaker stumbling their way through understanding their gender identity. As they move into the notion of being comfortable in their own skin, the people around them deal with the cognitive dissonance of their change.
