08 Feb Mardi Gras Film Festival presents two films with IVFAustralia
Here at Queer Screen, we welcome people from across the LGBTIQ+ spectrum and from families chosen and otherwise. We are pleased to be partnering with IVFAustralia to present two films from this year’s Mardi Gras Film Festival.
Potato Dreams of America – In turns camp, stylised and moving, this film – which expands the short film that won the Audience Award at MGFF18 – will stay with you! Quirky and unforgettable, it follows young Potato who leaves an oppressive USSR with his mother to find a better life in the US.
Shorts About Family Ties – Family means something different to everyone, even more in the LGBTIQ+ community. These Shorts About Family Ties explore some of the many different types of family and relationships we can have.
In Boom and Bloom, a father and son try to bond on a hike in the Austrian Alps; an interracial lesbian couple use straight talk and a little bit of cannabis to ease tensions in Blunt; a breakdown on the way to the airport in Borekas provides a father and son with an opportunity to reconnect; after moving to Los Angeles, Esi discovers a community in which she can let down her walls in Sunday’s Child; and in Baba, we follow a Libyan teen, Britannia as he attempts to escape to the pulsing queer world of Manchester.
