VINCINT - THERE WILL BE TEARS, 3min., Experimental
Directed by Ryan E. Nordin
Musician and queer Icon Vincint Cannady touches the darkness and the the light in this dazzling mini documentary.
Growing up queer in Minnesota made me feel, at times, like an outsider. I didn't always know how to fit in, but I knew how to pretend. This pretending would carry on for years until at age nineteen, I found a community that supported me and allowed me to be my true self.
Directors like Luca Guadagnino, Barry Jenkins, and Stephen Chbosky were able to show me stories so real and fragile, that I was able to step into myself.
The world needs more stories like this one so that more young LGBTQ+ people can feel a sense of inclusivity and belonging.
I’ve dedicated my filmmaking career to this mission.
