Diego Vega

Peru/USA, Crime/Drama, 201311 min, HDV, ColorSpanish, English with English subtitles

 

ALMOST CRIMES is the story of two young men and the decisions they are driven to make when they try to rob a South Texas cash loans office targeted towards Latino immigrants. Sam, an outsider, has nothing to lose but the haunting desire to escape his small town solitude. Jack is the town's prodigal son and Sam's closest friend, so when Sam asks him for his help with the heist, he can't refuse. Jack has other reasons for wanting to escape but he has a lot more to lose than Sam does. Ultimately both will have to face their feelings for each other as they realize that sometimes desire stands in the way of loyalty, and that there are still many miles left between the town and the city. Because, as they know, we can only play the cards we are dealt and, when push comes to shove, we take our love wherever we can find it.

As a member of a traditional Catholic family, Jorge Sosa had always been immersed in schools, activities and unions, in which his homosexuality generated an unbearable ideological conflict. This ended when he decided to completely move away from the precepts and practices of his religion. Then, years later, after receiving the counsel of a priest, he reconciled himself with his identity and now leads a church whose main mission is to promote this same reconciliation of faith and sexuality for others, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Sosa's mission involves teaching about a god who promotes in his followers responsibility and full awareness of their freedom.

Morrer Como um Homem To Die Like a Man

João Pedro Rodrigues

Portugal/France, Drama, 2009 134 min, 35mm, Color Portuguese with English subtitles

 

Co-sponsored by the Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival

Tonia is a transsexual star in the Lisbon club world. She is juggling a needy, junkie boyfriend; competition from a new black, drag sensation; her psychopathic, soldier son; and, worst of all, the physical and emotional ravages of age. Her body is rejecting the various surgical and hormonal transformations that made her famous, a fact made evident by the brutal representations of its physical deterioration. Her body seems to insist that her life lived as a woman must end in her dying like a man, but nothing is as simple as it seems. The film blends surrealism with realism to paint a complex psychological portrait. Official selection by the Cinefondation for the Atelier of Cannes Film Festival 2007 and for Un Certain Regard during Cannes 2009.
