Something Must Break

VIP ticket includes first entry, reserved couch seating, and access to VIP patio and reception

A thirst-quenching-ly fresh take on youthful restlessness and transgressive romance and a notable entry in the burgeoning canon of transgender cinema, transgender filmmaker Ester Martin Bergsmark’s (She Male Snails) Something Must Break is an assured, artful meditation, stunningly lensed and steeped in morphing ideals of gender fluidity. With a trance/dance-inducing soundtrack by Tami Tamaki and Olof Dreijer (of The Knife), starring performance artist Iggy Malmborg and Saga Becker in a shockingly candid performance as protagonist Sebastian/Ellie—Something manages to be aggressively punk in attitude, transgressive in execution, while wearing its heart firmly on its sleeve with lines like, “You’re so beautiful I want to vomit.”

Dir. Ester Martin Bergsmark, 2014, DCP, 85 min.
