First show: February 11
Cast member Daniel Sea in conversation with film writer Dennis Harvey after the Fri, Feb 11 show!
Co-presented by Frameline!
John Cameron Mitchell’s SHORTBUS explores the lives of several emotionally challenged characters as they navigate the comic and tragic intersections between love and sex in and around a modern-day underground salon. A sex therapist who has never had an orgasm, a dominatrix who is unable to connect, a gay couple who are deciding whether to open up their relationship, and the people who weave in and out of their lives, all converge on a weekly gathering called Shortbus: a mad nexus of art, music, politics, and polysexual carnality.
Set in a post-9/11, Bush-exhausted New York City, SHORTBUS tells its story with sexual frankness, suggesting new ways to reconcile questions of the mind, pleasures of the flesh, and imperatives of the heart.
Written & directed by John Cameron Mitchell. Starring Sook-yin Lee, Paul Dawson, Lindsay Beamish, Pj Deboy, Raphael Barker, Peter Stickles, Jay Brannan, Justin Vivian Bond, Daniel Sea, Alan Mandell, Adam Hardman, Ray Rivas, Bitch, Scott Matthew, Shanti Carson, and Jan Hilmer. 2006.
