In Neelu Bhuman’s wholly original omnibus — composed of several stand-alone magical realistic short stories written by a collective of trans and gender-nonconforming people of color — supernatural trans and queer people from various cultures use their powers to protect, love, teach, fight, and thrive. Featuring cherished members of the Outfest family like Harmony Santana (Gun Hill Road) and D’Lo (Looking, Sense8), each of these enchanting films harnesses the power of a trans community in peak creative form.
Neelu Bhuman is an independent artist-filmmaker exploring social and political themes as they play out in close relations. Playfully evoking insights into the workings of difference in intimacy, their films blend viewpoints ranging from race, gender, sexuality, culture, class and romance. Pushing these themes in FU377 (2014) and More Love. Less Prepackaged Bullshit (2017), Neelu’s films purposefully move towards abstract retellings of the problematics of identity categories and foregrounding varieties of resilience and resistance to experiences of duress, both immediate and political.
