Artists Hilary Harp and Suzie Silver present Over the Rainbow, a curated screening of queer and experimental shorts for kids of all ages.
Over the Rainbow: Queer and Experimental Shorts for Kids of All Ages presents nine short films on difference-affirming, gender-variance, and anti-bullying themes. A shy boy’s heart jumps out of his chest to follow a bookish boy right into school—will the shy boy ever get his heart back? Why are all of Alexa’s favorite things—like car-shaped beds, super balls, and soccer—called “boy things”? If your mom is an airplane, what is your dad? Can a bat who sleeps all day find a nighttime friend? The answers to these and many more questions can be found in Over the Rainbow, a screening of queer and experimental videos for kids of all ages. The short films in Over the Rainbow are moving, hilarious, beautiful, and inventive visions of a genderfluid world. As finely wrought as they are entertaining, the films in Over the Rainbow will delight kids and parents alike.
