Imagine for a moment that you had a safe space to meet with peers and mentors, where you had the freedom to express yourself without fear of judgment or criticism. In this place you felt safe to tell the truth; free to share how you feel and think; and realized that you're not alone. How might it have changed your life? How might it change the world?
'Misfits' film premier at the Circle Cinema
Jannik Splidsboel's newest film 'Misfits' featuring Openarms Youth Project will premier at the Circle Cinema on June 30th.
'Misfits' is a coming-of-age documentary about three American teenagers from conservative Tulsa struggling with isolation and instability in a heartfelt story that portrays family bond, poverty, survival, love and the consequences of coming out as an LGBT youth in the Bible Belt.
The film is about a new generation of teenagers coming out at an early age in the middle of the Bible Belt. While the general public opinion towards gays within America is slowly changing, this coming-of-age story closely follows the three gay teen protagonists as they struggle to achieve a sense of self within families in a community that still widely condemns homosexuality.
