South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
Title: Itís In the Water
Director: Kelli Herd
This romantic, satirical comedy, is set in Azalea Springs, where the country club set rules - League membership is a must, big hair is still favoured and only hair-dressers and interior designers are gay.
A new AIDS facility at the local hospice, meaning contact with ďthose peopleĒ, leaves them stunned.
But the real frenzy begins with a rumour that the local drinking water is contaminated with something that actually ďturnsĒ people gay. Central to the action are Alex, a young belle with a distant husband and overbearing mother, and Grace an old school-friend, and journalist Mark, regularly attending Brother Danielís Turn-or-Burn meetings where he meets the gorgeous Tomas', who mistakenly takes the ex-gay meeting for an AA meeting.
Itís in the Water is a feel-good movie for both girls and boys.
