Ira Sachs, 2013, US-FR, video, ov st fr & nl, 98'

After living together for 39 years, Ben and George (played by the venerable Alfred Molina and John Lithgow) get married. But this doesn’t sit well with the Catholic School where George works as a teacher, and he gets fired. Unable to pay their rent, the newlyweds are forced to split up, George goes to live with friends, a gay couple who are policemen, and Ben with his nephew’s family. Despite the uncertainty of their future together, and the indignities of their present circumstances, our protagonists nevertheless manage to cement their life-long bond, through a mix of humour and perseverance.

52 Tuesdays

Sophie Hyde, 2013, AU, video, ov st fr & nl, 114'

Sixteen-year old Billie has to go live with her father. After all, her mother needs time to complete her transformation to James. During this one-year transition period, James and Billie meet once a week – on Tuesdays. But Billie also has lots of experiences! She becomes close with a couple of students with whom she explores her desires and challenges her limits. In her first fictional work, Sophie Hyde uses an almost documentary style, filming filming as closely as possible to the characters. Every Tuesday for a year, she met with her crew to shoot the film chronologically, thus lending her creation a vibrant authenticity.

We are invited on a musical journey through identities in this hybrid film, which takes us across the vast Canadian plains, invites us to share its Greyhound buses, to visit its tourist "hot spots" (seriously?) and other "diners"... All accompanied by the melodies of Rae Spoon, an artist who crosses both gender and genre. An intimate and universal journey, poetic and offbeat. The film speaks of love, of growing up queer, of the things we are sometimes attached to despite ourselves... Surprising, touching, funny and magnificent.

Argentine boy escort Lucas arrives in Belgium. He has accepted an invitation from Henry, a baker who has flirted with him online. But being lover and apprentice to a rural craftsman is hardly exciting and it is in fact Audrey, the seductive but largely unreceptive saleswoman, who sparks his interest! After “Hors les murs”, David Lambert brings us face to face – without delay – with the complexity of prostitution and feelings of love. He presents the actor from “Glue” (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart) in a delicate role and allows Monia Chokri, a discovery from Xavier Dolan’s films, to reveal her comic and poignant side.

Breaking out of compartments, gender roles, performances… It’s not easy to represent sex on screen while subverting the constraints. This piece made up of multiple voices attempts just that. It is a chance for us to open our minds. The representation of sexuality is a highly political issue. We invite you to experience this pluralistic vision. And we hope that it’s more than gratifying!

The Unashamed Stories of Lesbian Lives

Lynne Fernie & Aerlyn Weissman, 1992, CA, video, ov ang st fr, 85'

This documentary explores a rare and lesser-known literary genre: Lesbian Pulp Fiction from the 50’s and 60’s, travel books filled with audacious lesbians in a state of undress. Get ready for a curious mix of interviews with lesbians about coming out and readings from novels that are as kitsch as it gets. Deeper than the necklines of the women on the covers of these novels, Forbidden Love provides an amazing perspective on these heroic tales of rebellion.

After the death of their Albanian mother, two brothers - the completely crazy Dany and paragon of triumphant virility Ody - set off on a journey in search of a father who is the only one who can get them Greek nationality and their papers in order. After the sublime "Stella", a transgressive ode to filial love, Panos Koutras brings us an epic odyssey, filled with chivalrous souls but also with fascist brutes quick to beat up fags and foreigners. Making a splash at the last Cannes Film Festival, “Xenia” burns with a feeling that is both social and political as also sensual and joyful, constantly looking for inventive solutions to move this tale of sex and carnal learning forward, emulating the spirit of resourcefulness that takes its heroes through a crisis-stricken country.

Aria is no one’s favourite daughter - neither her father’s, a narcissistic and selfish actor, nor her mother’s (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a musician partial to cocaine. Not beautiful or feminine enough, too intellectual and neglected by her parents, she gets by thanks to her one and only friend. The two of them love each other so much that they wear the same haircut and go by the same name ’Ist’ and ’Ist’. Punk icon Asia Argento leaves her mark on her 4th film - a striking and poignant work, partly autobiographic and with a haunting soundtrack put together by Justin Pearson, Gabe Serbian, Luke Henshaw and Brian Molko.

It includes puppet shows, readings, meetings and intimate scenes. Among them, you get to know the director and his lover “in love”, looking to share with us their faith in the survival of the fireflies and in continuing a fight which, far from being won, has never been this lost from the get go.

Fabio Mollo, 2013, IT, video, ov st fr & ang, 90'

A fishing village in Sicily. Grazia, a young androgynous girl, is caught between familial duty (her father and his fish shop), her brother and his unexplained disappearance (who has become both the idol and ghost haunting her thoughts) and her own hopes and dreams. This leads to a psychological, social and sexual quest, one that runs headlong into the silent walls of conformism. Filmed in a style close to magical realism, this first feature film by Fabio Mollo is testament to his talent, a director whose short films featured in last year’s edition.

“God Loves Uganda” explores the connections between the American Protestant-Evangelist movement professing intolerance and the recent homophobic and criminal policy in Uganda that has made it possible to sentence many gays and lesbians to death. Produced post the death of LGBT militant David Kato in 2011, the film follows a group of young fanatic missionaries preaching an extremely abject vision of the Gospel in the most remote of villages. This documentary is a must-see to understand the roots of the flood of hateful anti-gay sentiment in this African country.

Piotr, meanwhile, is bored stiff working a job screwing lids on jars at a factory. The three cross paths, and Piotr begins to fall for Asia. Kasia is also in love with Asia, but Asia, we discover, cannot stand being touched. Despite the obvious absurdity of the situation, a friendship grows and the trio somehow manages to find a balance and deal with their conundrum with a dark sense of humour, building up to the exceedingly sensual climax of the story.

Between lies and hopes, acting and reality – the lines blur, relationships are born or come undone and love appears where you least expect it.

Fleeing a violent father who cannot come to terms with his son’s androgynous charms, 14-year old Davide runs away from home, to carve out a place for himself in a little Catanian queer oasis, full of hustlers, transvestites and other queer miracles forced to live on the margins of society.
With influences from Fellini and Pasolini, this first poetic naturalist feature film by Sebastiano Riso, takes a highly critical look at the reality of a country that remains, in many ways, sexist and homophobic, simultaneously highlighting a world of violence and contempt in a gritty, full-on manner, along with the life-saving power of solidarity, beauty and hope.

Only the women are arrested, the man gets off scott free. They are sentenced to prison for carrying out an attack as an organised gang. Using this story entitled "The gang of killer lesbians" as a starting point, Out In The Night takes an cross-cutting approach, asking why we refuse to see these women as victims. Is it because of their sexual orientation, their gender or their roots? A hard-hitting film which reminds us that the fight for equal rights remains relevant and ongoing.

Together with her friend Jo, she meets housewives obsessed with hygiene, in-the-closet tourists, dominatrix businesswomen and sales representatives for sex-toys (several centuries out-of-date). The Foxy Merkins, a gentle send-up of American hustler films, parodying in particular scenes from "My Own Private Idaho" and "Macadam Cow Boy", is also rich in in feminist references, resulting in something hilarious and totally unique in its genre. A real discovery.

Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho

The Way He Looks

Daniel Ribeiro, 2013, BR, video, ov st fr & ang, 95'

Leo’s world, characterised by his over-protective parents and best friend Giovana, is turned upside down by the arrival of a new student in his class (Gabriel) with whom he falls in love. Determined to pursue his passion, he must assert himself and take control of his life. Here, the theme of discovering one’s homosexuality which has been addressed many times in film, is not used to condemn intolerance or backward societies, but to address a wider issue – the emancipation of a boy who is treated like a child because of his handicap. This film, which was given a Teddy Award at the latest Berlin Film Festival, succeeds in conveying the feelings and wonderfully fiery emotions of its extremely endearing characters.
