Short Film: SWIVEL, 7min,. UK, Experimental


What if, you can be all of who you are and still allow another? That just for one night, judgement no longer exists? What if, an intimacy of touch, a truth of want, Swivels around your doubt and trusts? What if, love is not a gender, it is a swivel of the heart?

Swivel is a short gender fluid dance story by Award winning director Lois Norman, starring the trailblazing Iron&Sparks. With visceral Cinematography by Canadian Teryl Brouillette, powerful Sound Design by UK’s Jemma Cholawo and New Zealand’s Helen Mountfort moving cello score, Swivel is a brave leap of faith, that moves to express the courage it takes, to explore sexuality and self with true equality, acceptance and compassion.

Swivel had its World Premiere at Queer North Canada 2019 and has since won 17 outright Winner Awards and many more Award Nominations!
