A mix of rotoscope animation and documentary techniques invite the viewer into the inner life and struggle of three young gender non-conforming people. With rational and composed simplicity they discuss their experience within a social binary that excludes them. Alli MacKay is an alumni filmmaker and Best Picture winner of R2R’s Youth Filmmaker Showcase for their student project, Air Pressure. MacKay graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and Flash Flood is their grad project; it premiered at Festival du Nouveau Cinema in Quebec, and showed at the Whistler Film Festival recently.
