CineQ: Closet Monster

Thursday 3rd August, 2017

Centrala | 18:30

Winner of ‘Best Canadian Feature Film’ at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, Closet Monster is a coming-out story with a twist.

Protagonist Oscar (Connor Jessup) escapes childhood trauma, his parents, and his hometown by locking himself in a fantasy world of his own making (together with his pet hamster Buffy - voiced by Isabella Rossellini). But when a new love threatens his asexuality, Oscar is forced to confront reality in order to move forward with his life and fulfill his dreams.

This screening is brought to you by CineQ, an expanding collective of LGBT+ film programmers including Flatpack, Birmingham LGBT and SHOUT Festival.
