5. Picture This
Director: Jari Osbourne
Duration: 34 min
Language: English
Story: * Asian Premiere
In Picture This, a documentary by Jari Osborne, we follow Andrew Gurza, a self-described “queer cripple,” as he plans the second edition of Justify My Love—a sex-positive play party that the international media was quick to call a “handicapped orgy” when it launched in Toronto the year before. At the heart of the film is the uneasy dichotomy that disabled people face, of feeling either invisible or like a freak show, especially with regards to their sexuality. With its insistent and unflinching gaze, Picture This invites us to see them for who they are.
