**This event is now SOLD OUT** The Equestrian Collective presents a special screening of Clyde Petersen’s critically acclaimed queer punk coming of age story ‘Torrey Pines’.
Torrey Pines is a stop-motion animated feature film by director Clyde Petersen. Based on a true story, the film is a queer punk coming-of-age tale, taking place in Southern California in the early 1990’s.
Raised by a schizophrenic single mother, Petersen’s life story unfolds in a series of baffling and hallucinated events. With a mother fueled by hallucinations of political conspiracy and family dysfunction, twelve-year-old Petersen is taken on a cross-country adventure that will forever alter the family as they know it.
“When I saw Torrey Pines in Seattle at the packed Egyptian theater, the experience was one of the most special and memorable I’ve had in a movie house. I left the show giddy and overjoyed at being reminded of how truly magical, pure and touching cinema can be. The soundtrack was performed live by an eclectic band of musicians and foley artists. Petersen is taking the film and a smaller version of a band on the road, so you will have an opportunity to view this gem the way it was meant to be seen – larger than life and accompanied by a live score!” – The Huffington Post
As well as screening the movie, with live score, this event will feature musical performances by Your Heart Breaks and Durham’s own Onsind.
