QAM Alumni Shorts Screening
An afternoon program of short films by alumni of Queer|Art|Mentorship covers a wide range of subjects in a variety of formats, including: a documentary about The Clit Club set in New York's Meatpacking District in the 1990s ("Grit and Grind", co-directed by Sasha Wortzel); an animated film about a zombie nurse who struggles with her identity and job ("SANDRA", dir. Mylo Mendez); and a narrative film about a young Mennonite who risks his life to find love and freedom in the city ("Unicorn", dir. Rodrigo Bellott). Other films in this program include "Mami y Yo y Mi Gallito" directed by Arisledya Dilone and "The Strange Ones" co-directed by Lauren Wolkstein, which inspired the 2017 feature film of the same title to be released soon.
