(Saratswadee Wongsomphet, 2010, Thailand, 102 mins)
Pie is a sweet girl who moves into a new college dorm room where she finds out that her new roommate Kim is a tomboy who looks and dresses like a boy.

Yossi
(Eytan Fox, 2012, Israel, 84 mins)
The stunning follow up to Eytan Fox‘s Yossi & Jagger. It is 10 years later, Yossi, now a gay, closeted doctor lives a solitary existence in Tel Aviv. A perennially sad, workaholic doctor, Yossi has his quiet world shaken when Jagger’s mother shows up in his hospital. Their brief but emotionally charged reunion unnerves Yossi enough to make him spontaneously leave Tel Aviv. On the desolate roads of southern Israel, a chance encounter with a group of lively soldiers ignites Yossi’s desire to awaken from his emotional slumber. world shaken when Jagger’s mother shows up in his hospital.
