Inside Out 2011: Our Top Five Most Anticipated Films
Circumstance (Dir. Maryam Keshavarz) – Audience award winner at Sundance, this coming-of-age story takes us inside a part of modern Iran hidden from the authorities: a world of underground nightclubs, progressive influences, and sexual experimentation.
Renee (Dir. Eric Drath) – In 1976, trans athlete Renee Richards shook the world by attempting to play in the US tennis open, causing the United States Tennis Association to demand that she take a chromosome test. This documentary charts Richards’ incredible life.
L’Amour Fou (Dir. Pierre Thoretton) – This documentary is the story of fashion power couple Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, and the story of their empire of couture, philanthropy, and enough art to rival an international museum.
Shahada (Dir. Burhan Qurbani) – Qurbani’s debut feature is about more than being Muslim in Berlin – it is about the difference between the people we try to be and the people we really are.
The Real Anne Lister (Dir. Matthew Hill) – The companion documentary to last year’s Inside Out Audience Award winner, The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister (which will also be playing once more), this film examines the world of the most notable lesbian of the Victorian age.
Inside Out plays from May 19th through May 29th. Tickets are available online.
