damian

2020 | 4 minutes | experimental lgbt drama

 

damian is a love story; on the surface level between two men but on another level between one transgender man and all aspects of himself. the film follows Damian who falls for a man he meets at a party with the cycle of this burgeoning relationship coinciding with his menstrual cycle. just as love is as natural as eating food, so is the menstrual cycle, and this film depicts Damian’s navigation of these aspects of his life. 

made in partnership with the smalls and funded by the barbican centre.
