desired! – film lust & queer

Two sisters – one lesbian, one heterosexual – are having their coming out and they discuss whether they should reveal their sexual orientation just to one group or not. What does it mean for a lesbian or heterosexual woman to talk about her sexual preferences? Is one less important than the other? What happens when opinions about this diverge? In 2 Sisters, 1 Closet, Inga Dievulyte presents two sisters who reveal their true selves to their families.
