Generations: Youth and Elders Making Movies

Celebrate youth and elders in this collection of shorts, including three films from this year’s Frameline Generations Filmmaker Workshop, as well as films from around the country!

In What Do You Know? Six to Twelve Year-Olds Talk About Gays and Lesbians, elementary school students share their unique perspective. In Hear Me Now, three deaf members of the local LGBT community discuss identity, activism, and adversity. A troubled teen discovers tools to help him navigate his discovery that he is gay, and possibly transgender in Scar, created in BAVC’s Factory youth program. Teens Like Phil explores the complicated and painful circumstances surrounding a relationship in an effort to better understand the roots of the bullying epidemic. Gender Menu exams a dystopic society where the gender binary has taken over…until one day a gender rebel sparks a change and gender revolution begins. At his tia's birthday party, a 10-year old boy makes a very personal announcement in Mariquita. The arrival of a mysterious package leads a disenchanted queer youth to an encounter with the colorful Mrs. Vera in Lost and Found. San Francisco Past and Present tells a series of intergenerational stories that offer a glimpse of LGBT history and examine an evolution in the local community. A youth and an elder discuss the youth’s future and the elder’s past in Run-A-Ways.
