Desire Will Set You Free
A gay romance with a punk/hardcore aesthetic, Desire Will Set You Free takes you deep into the free-spirited, drug-fueled queer-paradise of contemporary Berlin. Ezra, a struggling American writer, meets Sasha, a Russian immigrant escort, and he introduces him to his world of clubs and parties – a dizzying and vibrant hedonistic underground. As they journey together through Berlin’s layered history and unique subcultural landscapes, their relationship begins to take a new form and inner desires threaten to disrupt everything. Fast-paced and sexy with eye-popping cinematography and production design, Desire Will Set You Free features an über-large cast of notable figures, including Amber Benson (Tara on Buffy the Vampire Slayer), “Godmother of Punk” Nina Hagen, infamous performance artist Peaches and legendary gay artist/filmmaker Rosa Von Praunheim.
Red Without Blue
Red Without Blue is the groundbreaking documentary about the indestructible ties of family. This visually arresting film chronicles the close, yet sometimes strained relationship between identical twins Mark and Alex as Alex undergoes a transformation into a woman named Clair. Captured over a period of three years, Red Without Blue documents the twins and their parents, examining the Farley’s struggle to redefine their family. Through its portrayal of these articulate and independent twins, each haunted by the painful experiences of their adolescence, the film questions normative standards of gender and identity – as Mark and Clair reassert their indescribable bond as identical twins.
