Born Naked (MLB)
Andrea Esteban, 2011
Spain | Spanish with English subtitles | Format: Digital | 96 minutes

Director Andrea Esteban in person July 30!

Taking a cue from RuPaul's famous line “We're all born naked, and the rest is drag,” 23-year-old Spanish filmmaker Andrea Esteban and her girlfriend Paula take us on a journey to Madrid, Berlin and London and into the lives of a fascinating cross-section of young lesbian and trans artists, activists, and journalists. Whether they’re coming out, falling in love, throwing punk rock festivals, or putting together art zines, they’re all unafraid to be who they are. Esteban's fun and informative film will no doubt be an important cultural document in the years to come.

Screening with:
Queen of My Dreams
Fawzia Mirza & Ryan Logan | 2011 | USA | 3m

As a young girl, Fawzia Mirza fell under the spell of Bollywood heroines and their promise of love and feminine perfection. As an adult, she looks back and re-imagines the epic romance in the classic film Aradhana in a queer light.
