As part of our Guest curator series we welcome
Rebecca Ladida and Jess Lee as they present this queer short film and video program on youth, intimacy and language:
“I’m not sure what you mean?”
A program about queer ambiguities, awkward intimacies and youthful initiations; the feeling of being lost in translation and the necessity to make new languages, with all of the hesitations, uncertainties and ellipses this entails.
