Australia: Drama, Youth, LGBT 85 mins
In this award-winning film, writer and star, Daniel Monks, and director, Stevie Cruz-Martin, brilliantly adapt the tropes of high-school comedies and speculative science fiction to take the audience into unexpected places.
Pulse is a deeply personal film, looking at how much our bodies shape who we are, where we find the line between compromising for love and changing ourselves to be loved, and why we fall in love with the people we fall in love with. It is a film for young people, queer people, disabled people; but more than that, for anyone who has ever struggled with their body, their appearance, their sexuality, their desires, and essentially, themselves.
