This event will be streamed live in the Fringe! virtual hub from the advertised time and will not be available once the live stream has ended.

Queer souls ready to change the world live and love in stasis as a global pandemic shakes us to our core. How do we look at each other, how do we strengthen and embolden each other, how do we love each other? 3 bold and beautiful films reflect this arrested moment in history, and how to live through it together.

in the river (shuddering) | dir. Rob Hesp | UK 2020 | 7'

Local queers move together yet apart, offering themselves up to the horizons.

THE BITE | dir. Pedro Neves Marques | Portugal 2019 | 26'

The power dynamics of a polyamorous, non-binary throuple intensify during a Brazilian epidemic.

CW: insect sounds, pandemic-related dread
