Queer Women in Love: Break My Fall (Edinburgh)

November 23, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


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. Presented in association with DIVE Queer Party, Edinburgh’s eclectic, anything-goes queer party for, by and of the people.

Rated 15.

Content note: depiction of sexual and domestic violence.
