"Red Without Blue" Screens at Silver Lake Film Festival
You know that saying, “truth is stranger than fiction”? I never really believed it… then I heard this story. There’s so much to it, I’ve got to give it to you in bullet points.
- A set of twins, boys, born minutes apart in rural Montana
- A picture-perfect Americana childhood, complete with holidays, summers at the lake, and supportive parents
- Cut to age 14: their parents are divorced, the boys have both come out as gay and they’ve attempted joint suicide.
- Today, one twin attends art school on one side of the country, whilst the other is living as a woman on the other.
Their story is told in “Red Without Blue”, a tender and beautiful documentary that won the Audience Choice Award at this year’s Slamdance. It’s also playing this weekend at the Silver Lake Film Festival. Details after the jump...
