There are other worlds out there! Worlds where people have seven penises, where some are lost, and some become creatures. These films are set within bodies as environments shaped by tides of evolution, the words of future elders, and imaginative decolonisation. Celebrate our expansive biodiversity and the way we build new queer worlds and revisit old ones.
