INTERFILM 38 International Short Film Festival Berlin


SP 03: Queer Fever


— DEU–

Das Abweichen von heteronormativen Vorstellungen führt nach wie vor zu Irritationen und Außenseiterdasein. Auf der Suche nach einer Antwort auf die Frage, warum nicht einfach jeder Mensch sein kann, wie es eben beliebt, ohne jedesmal Rede und Antwort stehen zu müssen, bewegen sich die Filme der diesjährigen Auswahl von einer turbulenten Familienfeier, über eine peinliche Befragung beim Psychiater vor einer Geschlechtumwandlung, hin zur voller Selbstbewusstsein und Selbstverständnis ausgelebten Drag-Show mit Glitter und Propangasfee.



Deviating from heteronormative ideas still leads to irritation and being an outsider. In search of an answer to the question of why everyone can’t just be who they want to be without having to answer every time, the films in this year’s selection range from a turbulent family celebration to an embarrassing interview with a psychiatrist before a sex change, to a drag show full of self-confidence rounded off with glitter and a propane fairy.


Program: 6 films

Su-wan takes her girlfriend Yun-a along to a family birthday party. Since no one in her family knows that she is lesbian yet, she sneaks a kiss from Yun-a in what she believes to be an unobserved moment. Alas, as bad luck would have it, someone catches them in the act, and suddenly the whole celebration is at stake.

It’s River’s first appointment in the Gender Identity Disorder Unit. A psychiatric test is supposed to determine whether treatment can commence. River knows the answers and yet there is one detail that jeopardises the plan.

Jairo is a 50-year-old gay sex worker employed in a Columbian club. He can’t imagine a life outside his familiar underworld existence of illegality and lust. Unfortunately, his patroness implies that his time there is running out.

An Avocado Pit

Larissa, a transwoman, and Cláudio, a cis man, meet on the streets of Lisbon. Two individuals from two different realities – together they process and dance away their differences in a gentle journey through the night, filled with light and hope for better days.
