Forbidden Love Blooms in a Restrictive World: Sister Wives Takes Center Stage at IQFAF



Prepare to be captivated by a story of love blossoming in the most unexpected of places. Sister Wives, a powerful short film written and directed by the award-winning Louisa Connolly-Burnham, is coming to the International Queer Film & Art Forum (IQFAF) this July!


Step into the year 2003, Utah. Kaidence and Galilee, played by talented actresses yet to be announced, find themselves trapped within a strict, fundamentalist polygamous society. Bound together under the same roof, within the same marriage, a forbidden spark ignites between them. Their hearts yearn for a connection that transcends the rigid confines of their community, where the idea of being queer is a terrifying sin.


BAFTA-winner Mia McKenna-Bruce (How To Have Sex) delivers a nuanced performance as a pivotal character named Jeremiah. Witness the blossoming of Kaidence and Galilee's relationship – a delicate dance of stolen glances, whispered secrets, and a yearning for a life beyond the walls that imprison them.

Sister Wives is more than just a love story. It's a testament to female friendship and unwavering allyship. It's a journey of self-discovery, both physical and emotional, as Kaidence and Galilee find the courage to dream of escape and envision a world filled with acceptance.


Louisa Connolly-Burnham, a rising star in the filmmaking world, draws inspiration from M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village," crafting a world that feels eerily detached from the modern era. The film's aesthetic reflects the women's restricted lives, with a muted color palette contrasting with their vibrant, symbolic dresses. The unexpected soundtrack, reminiscent of "Drive" and "Lost in Translation," pulsates with a forbidden desire, mirroring the turmoil within their hearts.


Don't miss this groundbreaking film! Sister Wives, produced by Louisa Connolly-Burnham alongside Augusta Woods (The Track, The Ceiling, Fifty Four Days, Rambler Man), offers a vital perspective on coming-of-age stories, one that resonates with audiences of all backgrounds. Mark your calendars for July 12th through 31st and experience this unforgettable tale of love, courage, and the fight for freedom. Witness Sister Wives take center stage at IQFAF and join the conversation about love defying all boundaries.
