no one can hear me scream underwater dives into the absurd imagination of dee bustos.
After spending 31 years of their life in the closet, no one can hear me scream underwater serves as both a testimony and a prayer for anyone who yearns to liberate themselves from whatever oppressions and expectations that have been placed upon their bodies.
Pushing back on the social constructs of gender, sexuality and white supremacy — dee’s experience as a queer, non-binary, and xicanx person is inevitably woven into this work.
Whether you share these identities or not, the intention of this film is to both question and re-sensitize us to what means to be human in times where we are brutally separated. In the end, we are human beings that yearn for sensation, touch, pleasure–who feel unfathomable pain and can experience joy unparalleled.
no one can hear me scream underwater is an offering to all of those who have sacrificed themselves before and within this lifetime. It is a manifesto for those who chose to walk a different path, a heartfelt wish for our future and a total dream come true.
(Appropriate for audiences 18+)
