Rent or Purchase at CFMDC

It Only Hurts When I Cry is an experimental short film employing a queer viewing of the MGM classic, “Beach Blanket Bingo” and the notion of selective memory. Working with hand-processed 16mm footage, innuendo and a rousing musical number by Donna Loren, the film explores a re-imagined world where boys are different.
