MIX MILANO Presents: Love Riot Short Film Program




31 Oct • 16:15

MIX MILANO was established in 1986 and since then has continuously been a cross-cultural event. It has supported indie film-making, whilst also anticipating trends and promoting socio-political liberation. The result of this year’s collaboration is a great short film program—exciting stories tha t give a taste of LGBTQ+ communities in Italy. Pepitas Alessandro Sampaoli / Italy, 2018 Italian with English subtitles Lino is a young office worker, who does drag queen shows at night while keeping it a secret from his family—until the night when his grandmother asks to see the show. The Red Tree Paul Rowley / Ireland, Italy, USA, 2018 Italian with English subtitles ‘The Red Tree’ is a powerful and poetic short film that tells the little-known history of Italian gay men, who were arrested and exiled to a remote island during Mussolini’s fascist regime. One Last Time Charlie Benedetti / Italy, 2018 Italian with English subtitles TW: Eksplicit sex Everything ends, even love. After some tough discussions, Claudia and Elisa’s relationship is over but it just can’t end before ‘One Last Time’. In Her Shoes Maria Iovine / Italy, 2019 Italian with English subtitles Domenico lives in an upside-down Italy, where women are in power and men look after the family.

Buy tickets to 3 films and pay only for 2 - valid for all the films in 'A Night with Monsters' program on the 31st October. All Hallows’ Eve is the perfect time to come together and enjoy good and scary films. So why not do that with us? As part of ‘A Night With Monsters’, we are screening three films perfect for this Halloween. Starting with a queer horror cult classic—also known as the gayest horror film ever—‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge’, followed by ‘Thelma’, an eerie, supernatural take on the coming-of-age genre, and finally ‘Bit’—a modern vampire film. Freddy Krueger is no longer content with simply invading people’s dreams, he wants to possess someone to continue his reign of terror in the real world. That poor soul turns out to be teenager Jesse Walsh (Mark Patton), who suddenly starts having nightmares that won’t go away. Come to ‘A Night With Monsters’ and enjoy all the homoerotic (sub)text this queer horror classic has to offer, including Patton dancing in his undies, begging to spend the night with his bestie, and scenes in a leather bar.
