Touching on issues of mental health, coming out, political massacre and collective resistance, the short film program It Doesn't Hurt Much curated by Sarnt Utamachote and Popo Fan offers audiences a place to be, feel and resolve some of the tensions of contemporary society. Slipping through a landscape of homo-transphobic violence, these bodies persist by creating spaces for healing and justice, for love and growth. (SU)
