Saturday Church

Dir: Damon Cardasis, USA, 2017, 82 mins

| NewFest at The Center Presents |
Screening, Talkback and Reception

Winner! Best Narrative Feature, aGLIFF

Living alongside his mother, younger brother, and conservative aunt, Ulysses–a shy and effeminate 14-year-old boy–is coping with new responsibilities after the death of his father while also struggling with questions about his gender identity. He finds an escape by creating a world of fantasy filled with dance and music, complete with exhilarating scenes that explode with self-expression.

Ulysses’ journey of self-exploration takes a turn for the better when he encounters a vibrant transgender community, who take him to “Saturday Church,” a program for LGBTQ youth. Ulysses manages to keep his two worlds apart; appeasing his aunt and discovering his passion for the NYC ball scene, and voguing, until his double life is revealed. Ulysses must find the courage to be who he truly is, all while risking losing those he cares about most. A Samuel Goldwyn Films release.

Cast: Luka Kain, Margot Bingham, Regina Taylor, Marquis Rodriguez, MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Alexia Garcia, Kate Bornstein, and Jaylin Fletcher

Talkback and reception with writer/director Damon Cardasis and cast members Luka Kain (Best Actor, Outfest LA) and gender theorist Kate Bornstein. With special guest moderator R. Kurt Osenlund, Managing Editor of OUT Magazine
