Night 2 of the 2014 Indiana LGBT Film Festival

The 2014 Indiana LGBT Film Festival continues this Sunday night with shorts “What’s Your Sign?” and “A Last Farewell” followed by the German feature Happy End?!

Lucca is young student with a bright future in law. During her service at a local hospice, she meets Val. When their friend Herma passes away, they set out to give her a proper burial, despite the wishes and desires of her family. The two women undertake  a journey that leads them toward self-discovery and one another, all the while attempting to evade Herma’s family, Lucca’s father, and the police. Happy End?! is one part comedy, two parts action, and all about how two very different individuals can help one another.

The films begin at 6 pm in Beard Auditorium in Stouffer Hall on the Indiana University of Pennsylvania campus.
