Peter Sardovski is obsessed with political assassinations. He can’t shake a nightmare that a current LGBT candidate is at risk, and despite warnings to the contrary, Peter posts a video comparing his dream to the murder of MLK. The backlash is fierce and brutal. With his husband and 2 year old son in protective hiding, Peter must confess the secret that has led to him being canceled - a revelation that threatens his marriage and his future. But darker forces are manipulating Peter in ways he can’t understand, leading to news that his dream may actually have been a premonition.

Dress Up Like Mrs. Doubtfire
Directed by Will J. Zang, 2019, USA, 13 minutes
We think of it as a comedy classic, but Robin Williams’ tour-de-force romp as a kindly English nanny in 1993’s Mrs. Doubtfire also marks a turning point in Hollywood’s depiction of drag. This documentary features insightful commentary from critics, performers and by drag legends alike on the film’s surprising cultural impact.

The Gust (La Ráfaga)
Directed by Edgar Garcia, 2020, Puerto Rico, 29 minutes
Weeks after Hurricane María devastated Puerto Rico, a lonely middle-aged man finds himself obsessing with his neighbor, a young closeted and tormented athlete who insistently pursues his attention. The movie deals with fragility issues of living in a forgotten paradise, in the world's oldest colony, still half-torn, half-supported, with half-citizens, half-gods, and half-demons.
