PRECEDED BY SHORT FILM: TANK FAIRY Director: Erich Rettstadt, 10 minutes, In Mandarin with English subtitles, Taiwan, 2021
In Taiwan, "song wa si de" are workers who routinely supply gas tanks to street vendors and old residential buildings. The magical Tank Fairy delivers her tanks unlike any other - with sass, stilettos, and a healthy helping of glitter. Her arrival upends the life of Jojo, a lonely ten-year-old who dreams of dancing and drag. Outcast by classmates and misunderstood by his stern, single mom, Jojo is inspired to live out loud by his fierce, propane-toting fairy godmother. Tank Fairy is a musical extravaganza that encourages us all to embrace our authentic selves.

NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE
Nedjma, a teenager living with her mom and sister, spends the summer with her squad. She sees her life turned upside down when she meets Zina, new to town and from another gang. They are rivals in broad daylight, but lovers in secret. Nedjma is sucked into a spiral, torn apart between the values of the hood and her own desire, which no one around her can possibly understand or let alone tolerate. She will have to make a choice that will ultimately define who she is and what she wants. Besties is truly a story about love, at all costs.
