Ambiguously Yours: Experiments in Sex, Love and Gender (10/22)

October 22, 2017 @ 9:30 pm

Formations of gender, relationships, and love intersect with comedy, contemplation, exploration, and computer code in this queer experimental program that weaves a rich tapestry of gender and sexual identity that overlap in nuanced and multidimensional ways. You’ll see Love Bailey’s libertines and harlots SLATHER IT UP, explore the seedy world of Echo Park’s underground cactus scene with REDMOND HAND, PRIVATE DICK, and will be asked reflect on time, love, and aging by Robert Gray’s 3 CAFES and Emett Casey’s CURTAIN DOWN.
Total Running Time: 90 mins
Q&A with filmmakers and select cast to follow
