Based on the BAFTA winning short film of the same name, Femme explores queer power dynamics and identities in a deliciously neo-noir guise.
Drag artist Jules (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) oozes confidence in their alter ego on stage, but after a homophobic attack he retreats into himself.
When he spots his attacker in a gay sauna, Jules sees an opportunity to exact revenge on his closeted ex-con assailant Preston (George Mackay).
An intense, unsettling and erotic thriller.
