Twitter Capsule: Enjoyed energy, texture, and focus on spaces and lives often bypassed. Lots of stand-around-screaming dramaturgy, though.

VOR:   An envelope-pusher in transgender representation and in DIY filmmaking. All the richer in both respects for its vibrant palette, visual and audio, and its ragged-edged formalism.
