*** WORLD PREMIERE ***
Thursday 9th July – 9pm – Genesis Cinema
Twenty-two year old David has it all – he’s young, hot, and he’s just got into the prestigious dance school of his dreams. But he has a secret: for two years he’s been sleeping with his sister’s husband, Jules. After an argument between the two lovers, David throws himself into a one-night stand with Sam, a casual encounter which fast becomes something much stronger.
Unable to express his feelings to anyone, Jules is slowly driven mad by his secret desire for David, and jealous of his newfound, public relationship. When David’s sister, Jane, insists he brings his new boyfriend over for dinner, Jules snaps, revealing in turn a secret which none of them can ignore.
SOFT LAD is the directorial debut from Leon Lopez, an examination of lust, jealousy and their consequences in contemporary Liverpool.

After the death of his mother, 16-year-old Danny leaves Crete in order to move in with his older brother Odysseas in Athens. Children of an Albanian mother and a Greek man that they have never met, they decide they should travel to Thessaloniki to look for their father, and to force him to acknowledge them. Meanwhile the popular television contest Greek Star is looming large. Danny longs for gifted singer Odysseas to become the show’s latest star, in a country that refuses to accept them.
A beautiful, life-affirming portrait of two siblings who might be strangers in their own land, but who at least have each other.

A tale of lipstick and counterculture, Colin Rothbart’s debut documentary is a thrilling, hilarious and moving portrait of East London’s alternative drag scene, filmed over five years. Not just a whirlwind of larger than life characters, Dressed As A Girl also showcases the real people behind the flamboyant stage personas, to universally resonant effect.
