Truth or Dare

Vulnerability is the theme in these deeply emotional shorts that explore the beauty, fear, and power of physical intimacy. In TOUCHSCREEN, a man whose sex life is mediated by a computer is challenged to step out from behind the screen. In the intimate sanctuary of the bathroom, a lonely young queer yearns for love, and learns how to survive heartbreak in THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN THE BATHROOM. The program continues with a magical twist in THE CURSE, when an eager young man has an encounter with a sorceress whose spell compels him to reveal his true desires. In MISSING, a bartender doesn’t realize he’s fallen in love with a customer until he ghosts him. In BOLDLY GO, a young man makes a revealing sacrifice for a chance at true love, while in RUBBER DOLPHIN, love blossoms and blooms all in one night, but can it really last?
