#Familiar #Touch #lost #Figures, 12 minutes, 2017, London, UK


An exploration of queer ancestry and diaspora, the hybrids between cultural traditions and contemporary queer identity. This short film is about intimacies that are taboo. It’s about when you’re stuck between not knowing where home is , and finding home in a stranger.​
