The LGBT Films of AFI Fest

The Advocate profiles six stellar LGBT films that will be screened at AFI Fest, which kicks off today in Los Angeles.



On Suffocation

This seven-minute film has no dialogue, but the silence tells a dark story of the value of human life when weighed against the system. Directed and written by Swedish filmmaker Jenifer Malmqvist, On Suffocation is a dark tale of prisoners, their guards, and an impending execution, the cinematic impact of which is all the more chilling by the implication that it could take place in reality. Screens in Shorts Program Three Monday at 4:15 p.m. and Tuesday at 7 p.m. at TCL Chinese Theaters, 6801 Hollywood Blvd.
