MisfitsJannik Splidsboel, 74 min, Denmark.
MISFITS is a coming of age-doc about three American teenagers from conservative Tulsa struggling with isolation and instability in a heartfelt story that portrays family bond, poverty, survival, love and the consequences of coming out as a young LGBT in the Bible Belt.
The film is about a new generation of teenagers coming out at an early age in the middle of the Bible Belt. While the general public opinion towards gays within America is slowly changing, this coming-of-age story closely follows the three gay teen protagonists as they struggle to achieve a sense of self within families in a community that still widely condemns homosexuality.
The film is directed by Jannik Splidsboel who earned a nomination at The Berlinale in 2009 for his documentary How are you.
