from the program notes:

In putting together this year’s cinema program, we were most excited to remember that this festival is not only Homo but also Mondo. Thus, our program ranges freely (or veers wildly, even better) among documentary, video essays, autobiography, and art film; from works still in progress to a decades-old “orphan” film to true cinematic masters; 16mm classics and super-8 DIY and internet clips; New Orleans hip-hop and Toronto queer punk – more, more, put it all in, take it all off. We contain multitudes, and like the FTM trans man singing “Desperado,” we refuse to lose our highs and lows. Like our bodies, like cinema itself, this program is in progress. In the diversity, the disparity, and the chaos, we hope that you will find connections of your own to make.
