A BROKEN APPOINTMENT
Kaleb D’Aguilar / 1:47
Set to the backdrop of “Epilogue” by Kei Miller, A Broken Appointment explores the dynamic of closeting within a young gay relationship, and how “hiding in the dark” may lead to a destructive end. The film came out of an exploration of queer black experiences in white spaces, and is the foothold to a much larger film.
