Enough with all that hetero­normativity

24. April 18:00h until 20:00h at Kino 1

This selection of queer shorts sets classic images of sexuality and bodies in motion. Self-confident, lively and powerful and at the same time sensitive, reflective and curious these films go their own paths of storytelling.
