Land of the Free / Du gamla, Du fria

International Short Film Competition

The director of the winning short of Mezipatra 2019 returns with a confident commentary on the situation of the queer community in liberal countries. An idyllic celebration of two couples at a lakeside is disrupted by a comment made by some passers-by. The few words trigger an emotional roller-coaster that reveals that not every conflict is black and white. The variety of perspectives is reflected in the film image, divided in half – two points of view on homophobia.
