When literature upsets the lives of LGBT ++!
A short film contest organized by the Bulle Production association in partnership with the LGBT Paris-ÎdF Center, pinkX, pinkFlix, Docfilmdepot & ErosOnyx editions.
Closing date of the call and film reception, September 7, 2019.
Literature - at the turn of a book, the encounter with a work, an author - can it upset a life?
Literature acts on the intimate life by its power of evocation, formation and initiation. Literature permeates and shapes the individual, and perhaps even more the person Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans and +++. She can learn to assume, to think, that one is author of works or simple reader / eur. Literature transforms life by sharpening the critical thinking of the reader, allowing him to develop his point of view and to take a different and critical view of the world. Literature nourishes a path that helps to escape the naivety of childhood, to escape the violence of adolescence!

Who did not sigh with Romeo or Juliet, trembling with Harry Potter or fantasized about Tarzan or Jane?
