NQV Media announce the release of New Queer Visions: Seeing is Believing

Available worldwide via Amazon and Vimeo now

NQV media returns with New Queer Visions: Seeing is Believing. Bringing us a collection of superb and thought provoking short films from around the world. A world where men often hide their true love and feelings, while mothers turn a blind eye to identity. And where religion can dictate the boundaries of love and devotion. However, all is not always as it first appears, with each short exploring the complex representations of boys and men in modern society. Including how personal desire is often hidden from those around us, and how self-belief can conquer self-doubt.

New Queer Visions: Seeing is Believing features short films from Tunisia, Mexico, Belgium, Australia, the USA and the Philippines, including:
