Xposed Shorts 3: She’s Got The Look

SATURDAY 26.05.18, 14:00

The art of coming out is present through many of these shorts as our characters deal with the everyday banality of looking for work, experiencing the first time you put lipstick on and the courage required to show up to that blind date you know will not work out. These characters find their voices through their own journeys and in some cases, through voice training.
