Short film written and shot in three days for the Express Short Film Contest called "El Show del Txistu", part of the LGBT Film Festival ZINEGOAK, in Bilbao.
Contestants had to use a pair of 3D glasses in their works. This is the short film I presented, and I'm proud to say I won. Hope you like it.
Who needs astrologers? With the Warwick Rowers 2014 calendar, you will be able to get exactly the kind of perspective you need on the year ahead.
Featuring genuine university athletes who have stripped off to brighten up your each and every day, our calendar guarantees a very enjoyable 2014 for everyone who buys it, with a strong possibility of a welcome surprise around the start of each month. We're also sensing that there could be passion on the horizon, because if this calendar doesn't get you going, nothing will!
And this calendar won't just be good news for you. As well as helping the students with their sport, it's raising funds and awareness to support Sport Allies, a new programme developed by the rowers themselves in partnership with a registered charity, Educational Action Challenging Homophobia. (EACH, UK Reg Charity No. 1095665).
Sport Allies is dedicated to challenging homophobia among young people. The rowers are predominantly straight men who have welcomed and embraced the fantastic support they have had from the gay community for their fundraising efforts. Sport Allies is their way of honoring that support and giving something back. The rowers will share with young people their own experience of learning to understand the challenges that others face, simply on the grounds of their sexuality, and how this has changed these athletes both as individuals and as a team.
So please support the rowers and their efforts by visiting WarwickRowers.org, where you will be able to purchase calendars, greeting cards, films, and digital downloads. It's the hottest way to help...
Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code drafted by the British in 1860, Unnatural offenses: Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.
Amarendra Sharan, "only sex between a man and a woman was “natural,” because it has the possibility of procreation".
K. Radhakrishnan, "Homosexuality is a Western phenomenon. It has polluted the minds of young Indians. The court has recognized this. We are very grateful".
With that said, I thought it was appropriate to use a western song. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis "Same Love" came to mind.
This protest was held in New Delhi, India on December 15th 2013.

« I love your eyes, my darling friend,
Their play, so passionate and bright’ning,
When a sudden stare up you send,
And like a heaven-blown lightning,
It’d take in all from end to end.
But there’s more that I admire :
Your eyes when they’re downcast
In bursts of love-inspired fire,
And through the eyelash goes fast
A somber, dull call of desire… »
- Fyodor Ivanovich TYUTCHEV, 1836
