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.
With Director Paul Rice, Exec Director Liam Jackson Montgomery, Subjects Yael and Andrey
