Ashley (Country: UK; Year: 2020; Director: Jamie Crewe)
Dragging a wheelie case behind them, Ashley arrives at an isolated, beachside cottage. They hope that this weekend in the countryside might be the change they need: a change from depression, from heartbreak, from the pain of a shifting identity. As the weekend unfolds, however, their hope wavers: things go wrong in their body, or perhaps in their mind — or perhaps there really is something, outside, developing an appetite for them
Flaming Ears (Country: Austria; Year: 1991; Director: Ursula Pürrer, Dietmar Schipek, Ashley Hans Scheirl)
The story of a comic book artist, a pyromaniac performance artist and an amoral alien with a predilection for reptiles, living in a burnt-out future city.
Keyboard Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Story (Country: UK; Year: 2019; Director: Posy Dixon)
After his 1986 album Keyboard Fantasies is re-discovered, a black trans musician recounts his life, from the lonely 1960s to the joy of witnessing the present.
