The Straight Brother: He Was a Little Different

The Straight Brother: He Was a Little Different

A lifelong athlete, Paul Bockwoldt, 28, joined a predominantly gay rugby team on New York City’s Randall’s Island to bond with his brother John. They played together on the Gotham Rugby team, which hosted the Mark Bingham Cup (The Gay Rugby World Cup) in 2006 and played in the final Division III and regional championships in 2007 and 2008. For all of the team’s accomplishments, the incredible men and women who make up Gotham Rugby are the real story. This short documentary is truly inspirational and goes to show what really matters in our lives.

Wait for Me: A Mother’s Emotional Search for Her Son

Wait for Me: A Mother’s Emotional Search for Her Son

Wait for Me is a three-minute documentary short film by Ross Kauffman, the Academy Award winning Director of Born Into Brothels. It celebrated its official world premiere in the centerpiece slot of the New York Film Festival, and has screened in Berlin and at the Sheffield Doc Fest in England. The film tells the story of a mother’s spiritual and emotional search for her son, a ceaseless emotional journey propelled by unconditional love and an unwavering belief that he may still be alive. Twenty-four years ago, in 1985, her young son took a bicycle trip across southern Europe, wandered into Bangladesh, traveled through India and vanished while hiking in the rugged foothills of the Himalayas. He was never seen or heard from again.

Primping for the Make-Believe Fancy Dress Ball

Primping for the Make-Believe Fancy Dress Ball

Photography by: Andria Lo

Primp is a selection of images taken by photographer Andria Lo, which show young women dressing themselves up for the Comic Con International + Anime Overdose in California last year. Andria says of her project that costumes and costume-play are a major part of the world of comics conventions. They seem to distract from the introversion of the hobby. While attending one of these events, she was struck by the outrageous costumes and fascinated by how they could be completely re-contextualized in private settings. Strangely enough, with the exhibitionist element removed, the costumed are even more of a spectacle.
