Thanks to our community partner for this film, Lesbian Looks


In the early 1990s, queer teenager Jaime is sent to live with her devout Jehovah’s Witness relatives after the death of her father. Early on Jaime makes an unexpected connection with Marike, the daughter of a prominent Witness elder. The two are instantly drawn to each other, and begin a secret, unspoken relationship. While Jaime is secure in her queerness, Marike is too devout to fully live in her truth. When their attraction becomes too obvious to hide, the community moves to separate the two, forcing them each to make a terrible choice between faith and love. Filmmakers Sarah Watts and Mark Slutsky join forces on their debut feature to share this thoughtful and moving story of forbidden romance and the intensity of first love. (Dir. by Mark Slutsky & Sarah Watts, 2022, Canada, in English/French with English subtitles, 96 mins., Not Rated)
