“Princess Cyd isn’t interested in the well-worn plot of queer sexual awakening, the torture of figuring out who you are and the fraught path you have to follow to let other people in on your secret.

Natasha and Elise talk about what’s in store for their characters in the upcoming feature-length Carmilla movie.
Though her life was characterized by solitude and her love for it and the freedom it gave her, CHAVELA is a story of a remarkable person told by the people who loved and admired her most.
“Billie Jean King — a gay icon, a feminist idol, one of the greatest athletes in history, an unshakable pillar of indomitable humanity here in 2017 — becomes even more powerful in Battle of the Sexes, but the film also offers audiences the gift of undoing her invincibility in our imaginations by allowing her to fall in love.”
