Queer shorts films await you on this evening!
In a world between gender identities and changing body images, it's time to take a new approach to the "Coming of Age" genre. Young, loud and queer short films will be shown. Afterwards, you are cordially invited to stay for the subsequent film discussion with the filmmakers Luka Lara Steffen and Gina Wenzel and to shape the conversation.
