Hedi is the new neighbour of Iva, who is raising her daughter Sophia by herself. The two women start a relationship and Iva is desperately in love. However, when Iva’s estranged father appears, Hedi is strongly attracted to him. Director and star Uisenma Borchu crafts an enigmatic tale about the pitfalls of monogamous expectations, breaking free of taboos, and existing as a bisexual woman of colour in a straight, white society.

Screening with short film Self and Others (6 mins), a study of the visual language of sexual fluidity as captured through the lens of film history. Followed by a discussion to celebrate Bi Day of Visibility on bi representation with Jacob Engelberg, programmer of Brighton-based queer film strand, Eyes Wide Open Cinema, and academic Maria Pramaggiore. Part of Looking Awry: Representing Bisexual* Desires On Screen.
