CGiii Comment

The only problem with this film is...it's too damn short.

Social history, interesting lives...this has it all. A feature, please!

The(ir) Blurb...

Young drag performer Nathan is one of the last people to speak Gayle - a secret language the gay community were forced to invent during Apartheid. He finds out about Louis, an original Gayle speaker living in a conservative desert town in South Africa and wants to put on a performance with him. These men, two generations apart and from different cultural and racial backgrounds have never met - and have no idea how the town will react.
