(TEXTO EN ESPAÑOL EN CURSIVA)

'OUT' is Gsus Lopez's 4th short film starring fabulous actor Jeff Kristian.

'OUT' is a story about Mary, a divorced middle aged woman who lives with her teenager daughter Rachel in a small town in England.

MARY is a drama queen. MARY cares a lot about what people and society think and say about her. She lives immersed in her small town life.

As a single mother, MARY plays both roles in her family, the father and the mother.

One weekend, Mary's eldest son, Oscar, a trendy twenty something year old who lives in the big city, pays her a visit with one and only purpose: to come out as gay.

This event will change their lives forever.

OUT cuenta la historia de Mary, una mujer de mediana edad que vive inmersa en su vida de un pequeño pueblo de Inglaterra con su hija adolescente. Un fin de semana, su hijo mayor, Oscar, les hace una visita con el único propósito de decirles que es gay. 

OUT es una historia de salir del armario con todas las consecuencias a veces dramáticas y otras cómicas que ello conlleva.

Mary será interpretada por el actor Jeff Kristian. Representando así ambos roles desempeñados por cualquier madre soltera en una familia: el de padre y el de madre.

Este evento, va a cambiar sus vidas para siempre.

Please note that Queer filmmakers reflect the diversity of LGBT communities and ask the questions central to our lives. Filmmaking is a very expensive art form, yet the resources available to LGBT filmmakers are highly limited. Unlike studio filmmakers, independent artists struggle to secure the funding needed to complete works and support future projects.

Thank you for taking your time to read it until the end..., if you could support us in an economic way that would be really amazing, but you can also help us spread the word! Share this on facebook and twitter. Get us 'OUT' there! ;)

Muchísimas gracias por leer hasta el final.
