ENCORE PRESENTATION: OUTShine Miami Virtual Film Festival Jury Award Winner

A Worm in the Heart is a collection of stories of tragedy, strength and resilience from the LGBT+ community across Russia. Shot in six cities along the Trans-Siberian Railway, this documentary details the current state of the Russian queer community - giving both broad societal overviews and deeply personal accounts from activists and non-activists alike. The film follows Paul Rice and Liam Jackson Montgomery, a gay couple from Ireland, as they travel on the Trans-Siberian Railway, stopping in cities thousands of kilometers apart meeting with a diverse range of LGBT+ people-from Nobel Peace prize nominees and drag queens to those who have suffered brutal homophobic and transphobic attacks.
