18th of March 2022 | "Where do all the old gays go?" BFI Flare

Amber Jackson, UK Film Review rates our short documentary ahead of BAFTA Qualifying Film Festival. Read Full Review here. 

"What makes this film outstanding is its honesty. It remarks beautifully on the human aspects of aging from a queered perspective that appears natural rather than terrifying. Those interviewed do share the realities of getting old, such as a lack of a queer community at an old people’s home, or not having a safe space or support group catered to them. However, they are able to speak freely about those in life who support them unconditionally and they are able to embrace self-acceptance in the process. They speak of wanting a legacy and the beautiful representation of this film ensures that a legacy has been created for them, forever immortalised on screen."
