Wednesday, May 10, 2023
Doors at 6:30 pm | Screenings begin at 7:00 pm
Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts are honored to present Shifting Lines: New Queer Animation from Frameline Distribution. These six shorts traverse various styles of distinctive animation and live-action to explore relationships, family, and the development of identity in ways that are as thoughtful as they are stunning to watch.
From the tenderness and awkwardness of first crushes in high school, the warmth of chosen family, to the honor and power in intergenerational Indigenous knowledge, these expansive films remind us how much of our lives are formed by the intimate bonds we form with each other, how they bend and fray, and most importantly, how we maintain them.
Many thanks to Frameline Distribution for this program!
Content Advisory: While these films are animated, some films contain references and depictions of drugs and alcohol that make this program best suitable for those who are 16 and up.
