Stop Kiss posterStop Kiss
By Diana Son
Directed by Matthew R. Wilson

Oct. 17, 18, 19 at 7:30 p.m.;
Oct 20 at 2:00 p.m.

West Village. 1998. Sara and Callie form a rapid, unexpected bond. But, when their first awkward kiss is met with a violent attack, they and those around them are united in ways they could never imagine and can never undo. A modern tale of cosmopolitan ambiguity, of belonging and erasure, and of love how you least expect it, Diane Son's Stop Kiss is an unabashed look at struggles of queer identity and longings for connection. Stop Kiss shines a light on themes of assault and homophobia.
