Giraffes

An intimate view of a world we seldom experience

This sensual thriller takes you on a sensual and exotic journey to present day Cuba where three young Havanese outcasts find each other as they long to find their place in a world that will not have them. As they clash and bond; search and withdraw; love and despise the sensual undercurrents of desire and passion mingle with the crisis of surviving in an inhospitable world. While the outer story recounts the literal struggle for a place to live, the powerful through-line of the story shows us a universal plight of those who mange to rise above the conformity around them. In the world of the heart, our heroes tower above their environment and speak a language inaudible to those around them – just like Giraffes.
