World Cinema: Reel Q Presents “Sublime” (Argentina)

August 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Reel Q presents the regional premiere screening of a queer coming-of-age drama 

This summer film screening presents Sublime, a thoughtful, tender handling of a teen’s emerging sexuality. Shy, 16–year-old Manuel (Martín Miller) comes alive when he, his best friend Felipe (Teo Inama Chiabrando), and a couple of their friends form a garage rock band. Manuel and Felipe have a close, easy relationship made even more intense with the band and their music making. Strains develop for Manuel when his best friend starts dating a girl. Manuel tries to do the same, all the while suppressing his nascent attraction to Felipe. Confused and fearful that his feelings for his friend are not mutual, Manuel retreats into himself and eventually lashes out, forcing him to confront his feelings head on. Sublime is a sensitive feature debut with this sweet, queer, coming-of-age drama.
