Presented by OUTlook, TORREY PINES is a stop-motion animated feature film by director Clyde Petersen. Based on a true story, the film is a queer punk coming-of-age tale, taking place in Southern California in the early 1990’s. With a schizophrenic single mother fueled by hallucinations of political conspiracy and family dysfunction, twelve-year-old Petersen is taken on a cross-country adventure that will forever alter the family as they know it.
“A masterful use of paper cutouts and Post-Its, symbols and icons, a visual shorthand that becomes open but never, never loses its distinctive self.”
– The Stranger
This feature will be preceded by DATING SUCKS: A GENDERQUEER MISADVENTURE, the first episode of an animated documentary series by Sam Berliner about the successes, failures, and confusions dating as a genderqueer trans person.
