Event Description


Usha, a single mother who works as a farm labourer in rural India, feels drawn to a female teacher of local primary school, in ways she never knew possible. This attraction plays an important part, in firing her passion to read and write and she hopes to be as good as the teacher, one day. 
"U Ushacha" is a subtle portrayal of sexual awakening, as well as how a naïve attraction can empower a woman to take control of her life, and make each day, something to look forward to.


Ten years after being outed by his teacher, a gay man revisits raw audio recordings of his Filipino family’s reactions.


When Justine and Julia pick Jake up at a bar, it’s not quite the threesome he was expecting.Instead of the escape fantasy that was promised at the bar, Jake ends up entering into the relationship drama of the two women.


MONOGAMISH follows Sagar and Nishi, a sexually fluid, Indian pair who are not in a 'typical' relationship. Although the intimacy and connection they have are undeniable, they are not partners and they are not cheating. Sagar is already in a committed relationship and all three parties are aware. Monogamish explores the dynamics and strength of these two non-traditional couples, where agreements are made and boundaries are challenged.


Astri, a 16-year old transwoman, is in a relationship with 17-year old Tambulah. Although it’s an unusual sight at the community where they live, nobody bothers them. Subsisting on the coins people throw at them when they perform their traditional dance at the sea, everything seems perfect except that Badjao traditions and a pact made long ago require Astri to marry a woman she hardly knows.


Darren keeps trying – and failing – to propose to his boyfriend Elliot. While attending a friend’s outrageous engagement party, they are both forced to play an elaborate couples game that puts their relationship in an awkward spotlight. Darren flees to commiserate with his best friend Lara, who suggests he might actually be self sabotaging himself due to unresolved insecurities about his sexuality. Finally confronted with his own internalized notions of what relationships “should” or “should not” be ––even as an out gay man –– Darren must decide whether he’s ready to take the next step with both his relationship, and himself.
