20-06-21 NEW SHORTS: A Winter's Matinee of Romantic Films (at Curzon Soho)

BIG TOUCH, dir. Christopher Tenzis

For the warming of wintry hearts! From the compassion in a stranger’s embrace, to long term relationships recalibrating around gender identities in flux, our LSFF staple of romantic shorts returns.


Through poetry and drama, music and movement, encompassing affairs to remember and love stories with a lighter touch, we see how love conquers all in fifteen minutes or less. 


Programmed by Philip Ilson. 77'

Please note, the film Just Delivered can only be accessed by UK audiences at the request of the filmmaker.
