Brett Hanover | Memphis, TN | 86 min
Genre: Documentary Feature

Furries, filmmakers, kinksters, survivors: this documentary/narrative hybrid is a highly personal account of a young queer person’s coming of age in Memphis at the turn of the century. Begun in collaboration with twenty-year-old furry artist Rukus, and left unfinished after his death in 2008, this intimate film is the story of Brett–a sixteen-year-old filmmaker grappling with OCD and overwhelming social anxiety–and his powerful friendship with the eponymous lead.
