Alex still loves working           


In rural Germany, Aggelos visits his father, Ted, to play golf after a decade of separation. An unfortunate turn of events instigates him to deal with his relationship with his father physically and mentally due to unforeseen circumstances. With unconventional guidance from the mysterious golfing boyband consisting of Misha, Wolfgang, Kurt and Jeff he discovers the oddly compelling life of Ted that he never got to find out.

FORE: What makes an Independent film?

In her debut film, Alexander Norton explores the possibilities of masculinity within the confines of its own structure. As a transgender director, she focuses her attention on a particular lens of her past life, altering memories to create another reality from the original pieces. Using golf as a catylist, the overarching theme of queer perspectives on expected masculinities opens up the discourse with a 120 minute venture into “What makes an independent film?”.

The first screening and program at Moviemento, Berlin also included a short film made in 1997 starring herself and her father in a disappearing act that mirrors the same occurrence later in her life. To delve further into the perspective of independent film making a behind the scenes film was shown, followed by a Q&A format which will delved into the themes from the films shown to allow for further dialogues around queer masculinities and masculine role model expectation within family structures.
