Love, Scott


Love, Scott
(Canada, 2018, 76 min)

De Laura Marie Wayne

Muted light falls on the face of a gifted music student from Toronto, Canada, who one evening was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Exactly 1 year later, Scott, wheelchair-bound as a result of spinal cord damage, returns to the place where he was stabbed. This sensitively shot film reconstructs the entire event and uses it to explore society’s still-conservative stance towards the LGBT minority. The way things develop, interviews with Scott’s family, and archive material form a collage that leads Scott from his childhood to the final scene, when he receives a letter from his attacker. “Forgiveness is a journey, a process, a choice that he is faced with every day.”

This film will be screened during the One world / Jeden svět festival.
