A young woman on an imaginary journey experiences a brief romantic encounter. “Queens,” a visual poem by Alyssa Trawkina, follows the charming Tara — sometimes she’s joined by others, as when she jumps in a trampoline park, or rides up an escalator in sync with two other women. Other times, she’s alone, to pursue love, or to dance, or to scheme. Trawkina’s film is delivered as a series of stylish mini-vignettes over a beguiling narration capturing its subjects in multifaceted pursuits: as gentle predators, restless strivers, and many others. Written, directed & produced by Alyssa Trawkina. Cast: Maeva Roth, Hugo Tiedje, Palina Krause, Flinder Zuyderhoff-Gray, Lisa Brosig, Marina Steiner. DoP: Julian Schmidt. Editor: Nefeli Zevgoli. Colorist: Sarah Salzmann. Sound design: Max Hachemeister. Music: Martin Burkhart.
