Turning Trailer from Linnea Haviland on Vimeo.

SYNOPSIS
Voices in a crowd stir violent emotions, microaggressions bring up past traumas. Then a turning shifts the emotional landscape...




A short animation about the impact of homo- bi- and transphobia on young people, and how support and community can help us grow.

Turning, Stills

BACKGROUND
The film was developed together with LGBTQ+ young people at Gendered Intelligence. We discussed the themes of the film, looking at what feelings arose when we approach ani-LGBTQ hate and thinking about how sound and moving image could communicate these.

After developing the direction with them, the film was made experimentally, starting with a poem and three sections: Fear, Isolation and Connection. I wanted to communicate the feelings that arise when we experience hate crime, but also the ways that being seen and supported by a community gives us the strength to face those daily aggressions. I drew freely, and together Simji Park and I discussed and experimented with how to bring the drawings to life.

Bringing in snippets of found footage and animation from both Simji’s and my own previous projects, the final film started to come together. Archive footage by Sandi Hughs, who’s amazing archive can be found online here or at the Liverpool Library, became an important part of illustrating the postive impact of community.

The film was commissioned by GALOP, Gendered Intelligence and Suzy Lamplugh Trust.

The animation was made together with Simji Park. The sound design is by Russell John.
