After awkwardly coming out to her conservative parents, Asian American teen Twinkie enlists her BFF Egghead for a cross-country road trip to LezDance, a lesbian dance party in Texas, where she is convinced she will meet the girl she has fallen for online. Unfortunately, this is all news to Egghead, who has been harbouring a secret love for his best pal for some time now.

Director Sarah Kambe Holland’s adorable road trip movie, a directorial debut, is so full of heartwarming joy and exuberance that one could almost overlook just how smart it is, effortlessly tackling complex themes of cultural and queer identities in thoughtful and amusing ways. Not just a delight for the heart and mind, the film’s dynamic fusion of multiple visual styles makes for an eye-popping treat, perfectly reflecting the energetic unpredictability of teenage friendship and the confusing contractions we face as we figure out which road to take.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.

ASL interpretation will be provided during the Q&A, and live captioning on screen will be used during the pre-screening announcements.

Total event runtime: 107 min
