Adam

1996 | Animation / Black/African American / Lesbian | 4m | USA
Directors: Andrea Stoops (Villarrubia)

In this tender claymation short film, a little girl is mistaken for a boy and relishes the opportunity. Illuminating the innocence of first sexual experiences and the fluidity of gender identity, Adam is a delightful reminiscence of childhood.
