Love is All You Need?

Unique lives intertwine and collide in a world confronted by controversy and forbidden love. This world is very much like our own: filled with family gatherings at church, children playing in the yard, and college frat parties. Except these families are led by same-sex couples, and homosexuality is the expectation. To be heterosexual is to be shunned and ridiculed because it means you are different. In this world, to be gay is right and to be straight is wrong.

Kapgang

In a quirky, small town, situated in the outskirts of everything, 14-year-old Martin is getting ready for one of the most formal transitions from boy to man; the communion. Its 1976, music is in the air, hormones are blossoming and Martin is trying get to terms with his confused sexuality. However, in the midst of it all, Martin’s mother suddenly passes away and her tragic death triggers a series of events that not only changes Martin’s life forever, but also affects everyone else in the local community.

There’s a proper trailer as well but sadly it conveniently leaves out the whole queer sub-plot… which didn’t save the film from the critics upset about sex scenes involving teenagers anyway though.

I have no clue what this is, usually Thai horror films are amazing but this…!?

“Grandpa’s will asked the family to keep & preserve his body in the house with the family; they have been living with it for years and funny occurrences start to happen when the whole family unites to find the secret treasure grandpa left behind somewhere in the house…”

Yeah, that sounds pretty awful :p

Gayby Baby

milkboys Films, Films & Cinema 16 Comments

“Australia is in the midst of a gayby-boom. Twenty-four percent of gay and lesbian couples are now raising a child and their queer spawn are invisibly roaming Australian streets and schools.

In the 70s and 80s, when same-sex marriage and IVF for lesbian mothers was just a pipe dream, some decided not to wait on progress, but to create it. These first generation gaybies have grown-up, and together with an increasing number of gayby children they’re a cultural phenomenon we know nothing about. Who are they? And what is it like to grow up with same-sex parents?

While most kids are grappling with the idea of Man + Woman = Baby, gaybies are fluent in IVF technologies. They are well versed on how to hide their families, see a very different side to sexual discrimination, and it is largely unrecognized that gaybies have to ‘come out’ too. The documentary will explore what our schools are teaching kids about “family”, what exactly is a ‘father figure’ and are they important? And how does a teenager complain about their parents when they’re always trying to prove their family has a right to exist?

Gayby Baby will follow the newest generation of gaybies as they speak openly about their woes and passions; what’s great about their family, and whats not. For some of them, being a gayby doesn’t matter at all, while for others its, at times an uncomfortable reality.”

Graham Moore gave a very candid speech while accepting the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Imitation Game, a film about gay codebreaker and computer pioneer Alan Turing.

”When I was 16 years old I tried to kill myself because I felt weird and I felt different and I felt like I did not belong, and now I’m standing here,” he said on stage Sunday night. ”I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she’s weird or she’s different or she doesn’t fit in anywhere. Yes you do. I promise you do. Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it’s your turn, and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message along.”
