How does one go about creating mythologies of non-normative experience while exploring history in a markedly queer way? The films in this experimental shorts block work to address this central questions. Whether engaged in an exploration of human bodies, of untold histories, or of a mythological landscape with new potential, these films understand their characters, their subject matter, and their form in original and markedly queer ways.
