Alternative Kinship

No Romo is a short film about questioning the ways in which we perform romantic love in society and the many shapes that love can take. Baby Girl tells the story of Jessica, a first-year university student who suffers an emotional breakdown following the discovery that she was born intersex. Yet when Jessica meets the free-spirited Sally, she realizes that she can be herself and still find true acceptance. Polyamorous Family documents a poly family containing black, white, Chinese, and Indian members, exploring relationships, globalization, and sexuality. In Plain Sight documents how an LGBTQ+ community functions in Uganda, as the filmmaker shares an insight into the dynamics of life in a country where being gay is considered unlawful and immoral.
