7th of August
On the 7th of August 2020, 2,000 people protested in Warsaw in solidarity with Margot, LGBT activist arrested in connection with the attack on a van plastered with homophobic language – a common sight on the streets of Polish cities since 2018. 48 manifestation attendants were arrested that day. Among them were people who speak in this film: Kajetan, Kamila, Krem, and Julia with her partner. Their stories help us understand what is the cost of being nonheteronormative members of Polish society with a deeply homophobic and transfobic government, and what is the actual situation of the pro-LGBT movement in this country.
“The Youth and Film” The Festival of Film Debuts in Koszalin – special mention in short documentaries category, for a film “that portraits with empathy the stories of people persistently excluded because of nothing more than just sexual preferences”.
