Featuring films from around the world will be screened at various cinemas.

電影資料About the film:

少女金梅倫(嘉兒莫蕊茲 飾)在別人眼中是個完美的高中生,但當她在學校舞會中被發現與另一女生在車上親熱後,就被送往性向轉換治療中心進行性取向改造。金梅倫被迫接受離奇古怪的教育,還有「拗直」療法和福音搖滾樂的薰陶,但滿腦同性春夢的金梅倫不但沒有受影響,反而結識了一班同志好友,並慢慢尋找到自己的位置和方向,向荒誕的治療說不!

Pennsylvania, 1993. After getting caught with another girl, teenager Cameron Post is sent to a conversion therapy center run by the strict Dr. Lydia Marsh and her brother, Reverend Rick, whose treatment consists in repenting for feeling "same sex attraction." Cameron befriends fellow sinners Jane and Adam, thus creating a new family to deal with the surrounding intolerance.

Meet Ella, a year 2 BA student majoring in comparative literature. She is excited to watch and talk about films - all kinds of them! You can spot her at the cinema all the time because that is favourite place in the world. From b-movies to auteur films, Ella likes to obsess about the films she has watched and get (slightly) frustrated by the list of movies she has yet to see (in a never-ending watchlist that she would probably never complete). For her, cinema feels like a warm hug from which you do not want to let go. It is her happy and safe place. Come watch the movie together - something new might come out of it.
