An Oversimplification of Her Beauty
Overwhelming debut about the doubts of the director Nance about his relationship with a beautiful young woman. He combines personal experiences with fiction, documentary and various animation styles. A film filled with vulnerability and humour; enthusiasm leaps at you from the screen.
Swimming in Your Skin Again
Intensely musical film about the spiritual anchorages of life in and around Miami. Drenched in the heat, spirit and landscape of Southern Florida.
'Polyamory' means responsible and consensual non-monogamy. How does it work when you’re black, queer and living in New York?
A modern Romeo and Juliet meet on a city bus. Of course they fall head over heels in love. A classic story in a far-from-classic reworking.
A web series about the loves and challenges faced by a group of black, queer, polyamorous women in Brooklyn.
They Charge for the Sun
In a dystopian future, people live in darkness to protect themselves from the harmful rays of the sun. Except for a naughty little black girl.
