SQIFF Shorts: Projecting/Needs

September 29, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

A young man develops a crush whilst taking part in nighttime escapades involving photographic fantasies. German artist Markus shares thoughts about his online persona, a guy who pees in public, versus his real-life shyness. A British-Indian boy toys with his identity and daydreams about his best friend. Two Arab-American women express themselves through the power of the spoken word. Intellectual and would- be writer, Justin Otherman, is inspired after meeting the girl of his dreams, Shiosa Dorable. And a queer boy in high school creates a magic potion to get a jock to fall in love with him. Projecting/Needs explores the fine, captivating, and sometimes hilarious lines between reality and imagination, physical existence and make-believe.
