QUEER TALES (LONG SHORTS)

From changing room showdowns to clandestine encounters and societal repression, sometimes it takes a little longer to tell your tale…

THE BALLAD OF ELLA PLUMMHOFF
Dir: Barbara Kronenberg
Germany | 29 min
While the 8th grader Ella faces a decisive exam, she dreams from last summer: love lessons of her grotesque ballet teacher, her first kiss, and permanently annoying parents.

NIGHTSTAND
Dir: Charlie Parham
UK | 26 min
Nightstand stages the destructive relationship between two men over three consecutive nights— one is gay, lost and adolescent, the other is married to a woman and middle-aged.

COLOURS
Dir: Peter Lee Scott
UK | 25 min
Colours shows how Adam’s (17) world is turned upside-down when he and two other football team-mates, Mike and Alex, discover Adam’s best friend Tom is gay.
