Over The Rainbow: Queer and Experimental Shorts for Kids of All Ages
May 5, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$7.00
Over the Rainbow is a screening designed for gender non-conforming kids, queer families and their allies. Join us at Pittsburgh Filmmaker’s Melwood Screening Room to enjoy eight short films on difference-affirming, gender-variance, and anti-bullying themes. A shy boy’s heart jumps out of his chest to follow a bookish boy right into school – will the shy boy ever get his heart back? Why are all of Alexa’s favorite things, like car-shaped beds, super balls, and soccer called “boy things?” If your Mom is an airplane, what is your Dad? Can a bat who sleeps all day find a night-time friend? The answers to these and many more questions can be found in Over the Rainbow. The short films in Over the Rainbow are moving, hilarious, beautiful and inventive visions of a genderfluid world. As finely wrought as they are entertaining, the films in Over the Rainbow will delight kids and parents alike.
Over the Rainbow is preceded at noon by Drag Queen Story Hour with Akasha L. Van-Cartier.
