It doesn’t always get better, but I’ve found what urges me to feel like a better version of myself.”

IN THIS FAMILY
What is it like coming out as a gay teen in the Philippines?

In a country imbued with traditional Catholic views, coming out is received with disapproval and anger, especially from one’s own family.

In This Family is a short documentary that looks at how one Filipino family reacts to having a gay son. Revisiting unreleased audio recordings of fights from inside his own home, documentary filmmaker Drama Del Rosario shares his story of being outed as a teenager, dealing with his family’s reaction, and the society’s percipience on homosexuality. Beyond coming out, the film speaks about how parents learn to embrace their children unconditionally. His story is one of thousands that needs to be heard and shared.

Drawing its power and immediacy from its first-person, confessional style, the film presents, in one continuous 7-minute take, the journey of one man’s awakening from isolation back to humanity.

EXPIRATION DATE
Theatre On Wax’s short film is a visionary reinterpretation of the autobiography as pure cinema. At times dreamlike and otherworldly and at others beautiful yet elegiac.”
A poetic story about searching for an unexpired romance, a melange of sexy fantasy and innocent love.

DADDY DEAREST
David takes advantage of his father’s illness to get his revenge. His sister’s arrival will bring to light all those secrets no one wants to talk about.

This will be the fifth year we parade through town. It is a small town affair. Look for a stream of old trucks, hot cars and a ton of colorful people walking the parade route from the County Courthouse to Kit Carson Park.
