Love is All You Need? by Ren Martinez

A very powerful short film. In a world where homosexuality is the social & biological norm while heterosexuality is the deviant minority, a girl struggles with who she really is. The effects of bullying, religious doctrine, and parenting are all examined as part of a world which firmly and irresolutely tells her that she is wrong.

Watching this film, I was reminded of another Beatles song, begging us to imagine a world where all of us can live and love in peace. In the face of discrimination, intolerance, and hatred, sometimes all we can do is imagine something better. And all I can do is hope that the imagined future that so many of us share is not so far away.
