OUTer Limits

OUTer Limits


Program: Shorts

Tripped-out futuristic lesbians! Sword-wielding S&M nuns! Cannibalism! Trannies in space! Welcome to the outer limits of queer filmmaking in this series of shorts by six experimental, visionary filmmakers clearly weaned on sci-fi and fantasy films.
Director Martin Gauvrea achieves a visionary coup with AGNIESZKA (a dark symphony of 2039), in which joy and pain forever blur when a Pandora’s box subjects two women to the whims of fate. In The Incredible Dyke, we learn that “within each of us, oft times there dwells a mighty dyke” — and an incredible mullet. With a playful tone and big ideas, Transgender Express devours gender notions like Pac-Man (or is it Ms. Pac-Man?) consumes pellets (and features a fabulous spacecraft that looks like something sold at Good Vibrations). Fans of Pedro Almodóvar will love Sister Satan, a twisted tale in which “the paths to the lord are mysterious” and featuring a climax that makes Grindhouse seem tame. Trans-Neptune or the Fall of Pandora, Drag Queen Cosmonaut is an allegorical Rocky Horror opium dream of a film in which we discover the world has been overrun by a nasty virus, and the only escape is one that’s smoked. — ROBERT O’SHAUGHNESSY
