This week’s screening gives you a second chance to catch Kai Jolley’s Coming Out. Set in the middle of the first national lockdown, the short film sees a budding romance explored through the exchange of gifts and notes. Almost 11 months on and back in a third national lockdown, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the story still hits a chord with our current situation
The film will be streamed from Film with Pride from 5pm on Friday 15th January until midnight.
During very uncertain times one thing can be certain, we are living in a time of the unknown. Blaine finds himself stuck in the same routine day in and day out. He count’s down the days until lockdown is finally eased. It seems like it will never end. The television is tuned in to the depressing news of how many people have died that day. He can’t shake this overwhelming sense of hopelessness, when a visit from an unknown neighbour peaks a new interest.
