Cornell Cinema presents four films exploring gay, lesbian, and trans issues, bookended by two recent Academy Award winning films: Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name (Winner, Best Adapted Screenplay), and A Fantastic Woman (Winner, Best Foreign Language Film). Also screening is Norway’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film, Thelma, about a young woman’s suppressed desires for a classmate manifesting in an unusual manner.

Composer and percussionist Sarah Hennies will be here in person to present a free screening of her debut film, Contralto, a multimedia piece exploring transfeminine identity with a cast of transgender women speaking, singing, and performing vocal exercises, accompanied by a dense and varied musical score that includes a variety of conventional and "non-musical" approaches to sound-making.
