LIKE GLASSDirected by Andrew K. Meyer
Cast: Jesse James Keitel, Magdalena Borlando, David Elijah, Ashton Muniz, Peter Endrigian
LIKE GLASS follows Zion, a club kid exploring their gender fluidity through the avant-garde scene of New York City’s darkly fanciful nightlife. We witness Zion’s story unfold through a stream of consciousness that weaves a fateful night out at the club with memories of the resistance they’ve faced, both at home from their partner, and in public. In a society of binary gender norms, Zion is ultimately left questioning the truth and fragility of one’s identity.
