Summer Qamp dir. Jen Markowitz/CANADA/80:00/2023
Buried within the woods of Alberta, Canada sits camp fYrefly, a haven for LGBTQIA2S+ teens, far away from the fierce political battle currently being waged against queer expression and gender identity. SUMMER QAMP invites audiences into the innocence and joy of a summer away with friends, while never losing sight of the bravery of these young protagonists whose very existence is challenged in their normal lives.
“Summer Qamp is a tonic for people exhausted by homophobia and transphobia in the 21st century.” – Devon Banfield, NOW. Read the REVIEW.
