BLOOM | an lgbtq+ short-film

dir. Gracie Flores (18 y/o)

filmed April 2nd, 3rd, 17th

BLOOM– a story about identity… about love… about the blurred lines between platonic love and romantic feelings.

words from the writer-director:
BLOOM was never intended to be produced. I wrote it over the span of the 2020 summer when I was struggling with labeling my sexuality, my identity in the world. I write scripts because they help me figure out my feelings and navigate what’s going on in my head. The script for BLOOM was my journey in doing just that– accepting myself as a queer individual. I decided to produce it because I figured that there are so many young people in the world who are in the exact same shoes I was in last summer. I hope this film can help people in their journey and that it can resonate with them in some way.

thank you for the immense support everyone has shown; it truly means a lot xx

much love,
