About We the Animals

Dir: Jeremiah Zagar 15, US, Drama, 94mins

Documentary filmmaker Jeremiah Zagar turns his acutely observational eye to this lyrical adaptation of Justin Torres’ coming-of-age novel. It tells the tale of three young, energetic, mixed heritage brothers, growing up in working class upstate New York.

The film features a wonderfully raw and sensitive turn from young Evan Rosado as Jonah, the most reflective of the siblings, who is trying to make sense of his burgeoning sexuality and oppression that make his mother and father’s lives so arduous.

PLUS GSFF Short: Short Changed (Dir: Zoe Hutber, 2018, 5mins)

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for We the Animals are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
