GIMP GAIT
Directors: Pioneer Winter and Tabatha Mudra

The title of this work discloses its origin: ‘gimp’, a slur meant to mark a weak or handicapped person and ‘gait’, the manner or style of a person’s walk. The film’s subjects do not hide these from you – do you have a good view?

I Grow More Fearless Each Time I Make It Home Unscathed
Director: Jespa Jacob Smith

This animated short is an essay about being non-binary in rural America, where violence is a constant threat and transition can seem like a refuge. It also reflects the difficulty of existing in a binary world, where ‘gender satisfaction remains elusive’.

It is July, 1969. While man steps foot on the moon, two young men escape into their imaginations in the wilderness of Northern Ontario. Their love for one another is clear, but the lines between reality and make-believe blur together, and the two are confronted with unspeakable memories of the Vietnam war, the possibility that they never left it.

Rebirth
Directors: Gokce Oraloglu and Zehra Gokcimen

Dusk
