In the world of independent filmmaking, sisters are doing it for themselves! It’s doubtful that Hollywood ever would have considered making Out Film CT’s Second Thursdays Heartland, which was brought to the screen by first time director Maura Anderson and the help of crowdsourcing from sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Set in writer/actor Velinda Godfrey’s very red state of Oklahoma, it follows Lauren, a young lesbian artist (played by Godfrey) who returns to her aggressively cheerful family home after the death of her girlfriend. While tamping her grief down for appearances’ sake, Lauren begins a dangerous flirtation with Carrie, her brother’s playfully sexy – if supposedly straight – girlfriend. 99 min.
“Heartland may be the romantic lesbian-themed film of our time.” – Rachel Paulsen, pride.com.
