In 2022, we are committed to bringing Subjects of Desire into as many classrooms, corporate/professional spaces, and community settings as possible. Because this is a film that requires unpacking in a supportive environment, we have invested considerable time in creating resources and talk-back opportunities to accompany the film.
What can the film do?
