If heaven could come, it would be from other worlds.
WE COME (FROM OTHER WORLDS) – Cowboy Burn comes from a sexless heaven. Man and Woman have not yet separated. We live in Mono. Stereo hasn’t been invented. She has no rules, no right or wrong and descends to earth and must have sex now before she detonates. We come as one. A no holds barred abstract film short that pushes the envelope of art and LGBT cinema.

A teenage girl lost in love…
MYSTERY’S CHOIR (1999, re-released 2009): Teenager, Daena, is a teen lost in love with a much older lesbian woman. Caught in a magical and sexually-charged relationship, she runs away from a broken home to find the outside world is no better. Daena awakens from an inner dream and sleepwalks into a world where the harsh reality of life — when bereft of love — is unreal.
With little to no artifice: Mystery’s Choir is the first low-budget feature by director, Ji Strangeway. Produced in 1999, Mystery’s Choir was released in 2009 for availability to its underground “lesbian cult film” following. Experimental and avant garde, the film stylistically mixes conventional narrative storytelling with abstract dreamscape imagery. Contains unsimulated lesbian sex and intergenerational themes. Audiences: 18+ only.
