SOFTLY IN ALL DIRECTIONSUS/Romania, documentary feature (currently in production)
Following a vibrant community of activists and the creation of Romania’s first museum of LGBTQ+ history, Softly in all directions combines multigenerational stories to reinscribe queer existence into the public record. Forgotten histories entwine with the lives of present-day archivists through a polyphonic saga of political resistance, imagination, and desire in the shadow of the country’s communist past.
