Girl's View - A Collection of Lesbian Themed Short Films
Alluvial Filmworks present Girls' View, a collection of five lesbian-themed short films.
Open Studio - Rose gave up on her artistic career 30 years ago when she became pregnant. Now, after a life devoted to making sure her lesbian daughter found the success she wanted for herself, her daughter announces she's pregnant. The announcement unearths a rage in Rose and awakens her from her compromised life. It also ignites Rose's journey to reclaim her artistic voice and find her forgotten soul.
Unspoken - Unspoken is a compelling coming of age story: a tale of desire, lust and betrayal. Two sixteen-year-old girls share a friendship and affection that sparks jealousy and turns heads. But when boys enter into the picture, the dynamics shift. The illusions shatter as sex, drugs and infidelity run rampant in a junkyard.
Open - Modern ideas of monogamy are examined through reversed, intersecting timelines in this hilarious and sexy film. A well-intentioned agreement into an open relationship leads a seemingly happy, committed, twenty-something urban couple into a complex love triangle. Betrayal, bingo and sex toys perfect together!
Different - Joanne and Justin have a secret: They're straight. In the parallel universe of Liberty High School, gay and lesbian is the norm and homecoming is only days away. Starring Emily Stiles (Eating Out, Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds) and Ben Hogestyn (The Bold and the Beautiful, First openly gay character on General Hospital).
Sugared Peas - The whirlwind emotions of youthful love and coming out are explored in this evocatively filmed short. Two unrequited lovers from a convent school have a fateful meeting many years later. This heartbreaking, touchingly bittersweet film examines the fears and frustrations of attempting to establish a first same-sex relationship.

There's nothing funny about bad film makingMar 16, 2008
By L. Turner
Wow. I heard some positvie things about this collection of short films, but was shocked to find it to be scattered and poorly made. Sparing the first and last films, the collection was actually hard to watch. I have no idea how it won any awards.
"Open" is actually possibly the worst short film I have ever witnessed. And I have seen short films made on a zero budget by friends. The dialogue was trite and the acting horrible. There was a lot of "humorous" moments the fell short of even being tolerable. Like a lesbian pretending to hit on a chair? That is...what? funny? Or two girls doing exaggerated impressions of female porn stars that just go on and on. Is that supposed to be racy? Just the worst piece of film I have ever sat through. If only it had been longer than ten minutes I would have turned it off.
"Sugared Peas" makes me shudder to even think about. So obvious and contrived, it makes me wonder how anybody ever considered actually putting it out for release on this collection.
"Open Studio" is about a lady trying to reclaim her long lost artistic ability. It has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with lesbians. (I think her daughter might be a lesbian.) Also, the film is very poorly written and the overly dramatic acting just made it obvious that this was an amatuer work.
The first film, "Unspoken", is actually really well shot and professional. Decent acting and dialogue also contributes to it being a well made film. Only problem is that it has a beginning and a middle but no ending. It was like watching a part of a movie and then having someone turn the tv off. I know it's a short, but short films are still supposed to tell a story (last time I checked) and not just give you a snippet of someone's life.
The last film, "Different" was the only one I actually enjoyed. Seemed like a film school project, but one that was somewhat original.
Another odd thing about this collection is that it obviously collected films made over at least a decade. The films were only loosely bound by the lesbian theme. Other than that they had no relation to one another.
All in all this was not worth any money. It was a huge waste of my time.
I've seen enough poorly made short films to last me a lifetime and I didn't need to buy a new collection of them.
There are other collections of short films that are far better than this.
