“If Unidentified Objects can show even one restless soul how much they matter, then all of our work was absolutely worth it” – director Juan Felipe Zuleta. Queer Thursday’s August selection has been a favorite of LGBTQ+ film festival audiences from Toronto to Los Angeles. Now Connecticut filmgoers have the chance to watch the first film of Columbian immigrant director Juan Felipe Zuleta, a comedy/drama about a surreal road trip like no other. A curmudgeonly gay Little Person (Jeffers) joins his blithely happy neighbor (Hay) on journey from New York City to rural Canada, looking for the site of what she believes to be an upcoming alien visitation. Along the way, their quest for connection is tested by shroom-addled survivalists, overzealous cosplayers, and the painful realization that we possibly may be alone in the universe.
“If we “Surreal, darkly humorous, and inventive – it’s supremely entertaining.” – Frameline, San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival
