I Queer I: Lovebirds I

  • 1h 31 min
  • Romance, Shorts

Isn't all love fundamentally queer? Doesn't it always go against a type of established order, destabilising us and the systems we are a part of?

This queerness manifests itself as we touch upon the limits of ourselves and others. Some are more resilient to its effects and some could never cope, but it's always up to us whether we make the choice to follow the call or not.

These are films about lovebirds who did.
