Heterosexual Jill

Heterosexual Jill is one of our feature films for Opening Night in Auckland (Thu 22 May) and Opening Night in Christchurch (Thu 12 June), and also for the Lesbian Gala in Wellington (Sun 1 June).

We're thrilled that Kelsey Sutcliffe, director of New Zealand short film The Maids, will attend Opening Night in Auckland to introduce her film.

What’s Emily to do when her maid of honour confesses that she loves her? 

Dir: Michelle Ehlen, USA, 2013, 80 mins

Jill joins an “ex-lesbian” therapy group, but in order to prove to herself that she is straight she tracks down her butch ex-girlfriend Jamie. Strung along by guilt and desire, Jamie agrees to the plan of “dating” Jill so that Jill can close the lesbian chapter of her life. What could possibly go wrong? Director Michelle Ehlen, who stars as Jaimie, mixes camp humour with sharp observations on sexuality and identity.
