SHORTS: EYES THAT SHOW KALEIDOSCOPES

Queer narratives combine with dazzling artistry to stretch the imagination into fantastical animated worlds in this collection of shorts. Working in a variety of styles, colors, and emotional frequencies, animators from Sweden, Canada, France, Brazil, and the U.S. use their palettes to create visually daring, wonderfully weird, and refreshingly frank stories that lovingly embrace all that is queer, whether a pair of star-crossed Swedish boyfriends, a trans teen finding her place in the world, or a deliciously naughty pair of nuns.
