Here's a shoutout to the Israel Film Festival (in its 20th iteration) which again is bringing us queer content. What's up: The Secrets, a 2007 film about the journey of two Jewish women to find themselves.
The film comes recommended by the Israel Embassy, as one that would be of interest to this demographic. We haven't seen it yet, so can't comment on that either way, but The Secrets is highly lauded on the internet, as above all a film about strong women, with The New York Times calling it a "feminist cri de coeur" -- "cry from the heart".
Besides the accolades Cathay listed on its website, the film was also nominated for the Philadelphia International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and has done the gay and lesbian film festival circuit back in 2008.
