Queer Women in Love: Break My Fall (Glasgow)

November 22, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Break My Fall

Liza is hovering precariously between change and self-destruction, between leaving her failing relationship with girlfriend Sally and finding success with their band, Blanket. Sally is working in an unfulfilling job and clinging to fantasies of a better life, ignoring the chaos around her. Their best friends are Vin, a rent boy who is secretly in love with Sally, and Jamie, who works nights at a gay cabaret bar and longs to find a nice man to settle down with. On the three days leading up to Liza’s 25th birthday, things finally come to a head and the four are plunged into an emotional meltdown. Set on the pulsating streets of East London and with a soundtrack featuring stars of the UK independent music scene such as Micachu, Peggy Sue, and Scout Niblett.

Director Kanchi Wichmann will join us for a Q&A after the screening. Kanchi will also give a workshop prior to the screening.

Screening with short Goodnight My Love by Kellee Terrell. Two lovers are caught in a zombie apocalypse and the terror of impending doom brings out tensions between them as they take aim at each other’s faults.

Rated 15.
