A drag queen holds two faces close to her's.

Maurice’s Bar [short film]

  Tzor Edery, Tom Prezman

  France, Israel     15 minutes


One of Paris’ first queer bars is commemorated in this strikingly composed and visually moody short. Customers recount mysterious rumors about the bar’s Jewish-Algerin owner, enjoy the bar’s infamous cabaret, and canoodle in its dark corners as an obsessive policeman surveils the bar from across the street.

This film screens as part of the Shorts 2: Animation – Desires program.
