Charlie accidentally snaps a photo of a murder and becomes the next target. With a killer hot on her trail, Charlie develops a new relationship. But how does this photographer negotiate the terms of this new love in a context where there are so many choices of how to love.
Snapshot is a rare film which doesn't hold back as it explores love and desire between queer people of colour. Snapshot is beautifully shot, with powerful performances, drawing inspiration from film classics like Hitchcock's Rear Window and Antonioni's Blow Up.

More Love. Less Prepackaged Bullshit (2017)
UK/USA dir. Neelu Bhuman 1 min 20 secs
A black transwoman, brown genderqueer person and a white queer cis man resist patriarchal constructions while enjoying intimacy and love.
"The films are of an explicit sexual nature, because part of Carnival is about 'getting on bad', being decadent and enjoying carnal pleasures. I wanted to show films that exemplified this, made by queer people of colour. Queer people of color experience our sexuality and bodies as stolen property, our bodies have been colonised. Carnival allows us to take back the power." Campbell X Curator
