SONGS FOR ALEXIS

Expected to Attend: Elvira Lind, film subject Ryan Cassata

NYC PREMIERE Young love—and heartbreak—is captured through a tailor-made soundtrack in Elvira Lind’s sweetly observed naturalistic portrait. 18-year-old hopeless romantic Ryan writes songs about his 16-year-old girlfriend Alexis as the couple navigates a long-distance relationship between Long Island and San Francisco. But in contrast to his supportive family, Alexis’s father doesn’t approve of their relationship because Ryan is transgender, and threatens not only to break them apart but to involve the law due to their age difference.  CLICK HERE TO WATCH A TRAILER

This screening is co-presented by NewFest.
