Reluctantly Queer

  • 8'
  • Ghana
  • 2016
In a letter to his mother, a young Ghanaian immigrant writes frankly about his love for her, but in more guarded terms about his love for men. His attempt to explain why he left for America largely expresses doubt and uncertainty. Hushed monologue in black-and-white.
