BREAK THROUGH, Aaron Hosé
USA / 2013 / 61 min / BluRay / English
In September 2010, 18 year-old Tyler Clementi took his own life following the online posting of a secret video, made by his roommate, of Tyler’s sexual encounter with another male student. This tragedy and betrayal touched people across the country, but none more intensely than young adults questioning modern sexual mores and how they affect their own sexual identities. Break Through is a raw, eye-opening documentary following a group of impassioned theatre students who come together to produce a play aiming to shed light on the many stigmas and equality-rights issues faced by LGBT youth in the United States today. Throughout the creative process, they face the truths about themselves and their families. In the end, they learn the importance of self-acceptance and of overcoming their fears, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
