Two Soft Things, Two Hard Things at The British Museum

24 Sep

After an amazing year on the festival circuit and in many art galleries around the world, I am so happy to announce that our documentary Two Soft Things, Two Hard Things has been acquired by The British Museum in London. Not only will they have the work in their archives for decades to come, but they are holding a free screening (but you have to book your spot) as part of their LGBTQ Film Day on October 14th. My co-director Michael Yerxa and I will both be in attendance to introduce the film and chat afterwards. This will likely be our last Q&A for the film as we move on to our next project. We are so indebted to the amazing community in Iqaluit whom entrusted us with their stories and are so pleased that we have been able to share your journeys around the globe. If you are in London, please join us on October 14th! Info below. We also have upcoming screenings in Bremen, Hannover, Copenhagen and Amsterdam. Check out our screenings section for more.
