Laws of Attraction
August 18 screening at 12:40PM- One ticket remaining
This collection of 6 short films traverses vibrant styles from hard drama to reflective longing. United States: Spanning across 14 years and capturing two turning points in the lives of Ben and Johnny, The Dare Project is a unique film in the vein of Boyhood & The 7 Up series. At seventeen, Ben was a closeted, outcast teenager who dared to connect with the untouchable Johnny during a champagne-fueled night in a swimming pool. What happened rocked their worlds in surprising ways. After high school they never saw each other again. Until now. In Near Change, Dino and his best friend Tony are mid-level mafia foot soldiers. As they wait for breakfast in a diner, Dino realizes he has reached his fork in the road and something is going to have to change. When Paul's best friends are suddenly killed in a car crash, he must decide if he can raise their child---with or without his boyfriend---before the child wakes up in Teddy. In Poof, eighteen-year-old Aaron’s life is turned upside-down when he meets Mike at a party. The more he explores his sexuality, the more he begins to consider the impact this may have on the rest of his life. Canada: After Ivan was diagnosed with ALS, his relationship with Lucas goes into Freefall when he starts to lose control of his own body. Netherlands: Fifteen year-old Bram has fallen hopelessly in love with the pretty boy on the dance floor. There is only one problem: no one knows that Bram is gay. During a game of spin the bottle, he decides to twist the fate of the evening, and maybe his whole life in Turn It Around.
