Sticky Fingers

Expected to attend: Director Sidsel Møller Johnsen (Raniya), Producer Niels Wee (Raniya)

Love and lust come in a variety of shapes and forms. In these sexy, rambunctious shorts, we capture rabble-rousers on wild rides through first crushes, friend crushes, and online crushes. This collection of stories gives a fresh twist on rebellion and living out your truth, all accompanied by an energetic soundtrack by new music artists. Sticky Fingers finds Lucy and Cassie, two best friends, exploring their complicated relationship over a night of punk rock, shoplifting, and hair dye. And Cassie certainly embraces her edgier side under the guidance of the more radical Lucy. Raniya, a young Danish woman with Middle Eastern roots, discovers her sexuality by secretly flirting through a dating app, and eventually meeting up with Julie. But Raniya’s love is tested when she must decide between her allegiance to her family or herself. One Last Night presents an urban adventure in Tel Aviv: before Orr leaves for Berlin, she and Noa fall into one last night of rock, sweat, and tears. But trouble brews as Orr comes to the rescue of a friend, and both she and Noa get arrested. In Arrivederci Rosa, two old school friends from Rome meet up again in London. Rosa’s a radiant beauty; Andi’s a bit of a nerd. Rosa’s lust for life helps her friend to see it’s not about being gay, being straight, or being Rosa—it’s just about being true. Come along and experience this music-driven collection for the ride of a lifetime.
