The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️🌈 have a chat with Nino Aldi and Jake Hunter of the short film Tribes that will be a featured World Premiere at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in a couple of weeks. They tell us how they got into the business and the idea of this short film and the making of it. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
Tribes tells the story of an African American, an Arab-American and a white guy who try to rob a subway wagon. Because none of them wants to rob people of their own race, it sets them off to a series of arguments over self-identity. This leads the would-be bandits to continually divide the passengers into various ethnic, cultural and economic subgroups in an effort to find a class of people that none of them identify with – a group they can feel good about robbing. When the train arrives at the next station, no one expects that the situation would be reversed. Self-identity is truly a bitch.
In our second segment, we chat about Tribes announcement and also our vacation for the holidays. We also highlight recent articles posted to the tggeeks.com in the past week. As always we have our birthdays and we have the ever-popular feedback segment.
We welcome your feedback. Please, let us know what you think. Good or bad, we want to know and you could receive a shoutout in the feedback segment. Thank you for listening, we really do appreciate you taking time out of your day to spend with us.
