On friday night I went to the opening of the XIV Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. This year the festival will run from April 27 until May 6, 10 days in which over 65 films will be shown. On Friday I saw the 2012 the New Zealand drama Kawa, directed by Katie Wolfe. The film focuses on a man, Kawa, who has lived his entire life in the closet. Kawa is a successful businessman from a prominent family. He’s also a husband and the father of two children. Everything is turned around when his lifelong double life as a gay man in the shadows isn’t so secret anymore.

I'm planning to watch more films if my schedule allows me to.

It looks like an interesting, moving film. Seldom do films like that come anywhere near where I am. -sigh-

Thanks for posting about it.

I also like the idea that these films appear to be mainly "short" films; I am of the opinion that, at least in art and chocolate, less is often more.
As good 'ol Picasso said: "Art is the elimination of the unnecessary." -Pablo Picasso, painter, and sculptor (1881-1973)
(not that all films must be art.... ;) )
