Gay and Lesbian film festival home
One of several Barcelona film festivals taking place this month, this one focuses on films (shorts, documentaries and features) about gay and lesbian culture. The inaugural film is The Baby Formula, about a lesbian couple who both decide to try and get pregnant without a man or any sperm.At the other end of the programme, the closing film is Drool, described by organisers as part Thelma and Louise, part Little Miss Sunshine. In the documentary section, the screenings include Gender me (2008), looking at gay Muslims through the experience of Mansour, a homosexual refugee from Iran who, after living in Oslo for 18 years, wanted to travel to Istanbul and Les garçons de la piscine (2009) about a male synchronised swimming team and their female coaches.
