Shorts Block: Oh Me, Oh My

  • Chemistry Creative 305 Ten Eyck Street Brooklyn, NY, 11206 United States (map)

Falling in love is the easiest way to make yourself look like an idiot. Whether platonic, maternal, or romantic, eternal or ticking like a time bomb, love blooms with fresh challenges every day. All of these films disrupt the way we generally see love in film: young, cis-gendered, and white. Here we meet ancient artists for whom verbal communication is already a ghost, a trans woman who is anxious that her cis partner is nostalgic for their heteronormative presenting past, and an exciting new project penned by Alexander Dinelaris Jr. that has the same kind of tactful wacky approach to love as a little known project that he co-wrote: Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). Oh me, oh my, you know that I’m crazy baby.
