CLYDE PETERSEN / Seattle
“View this gem the way it was meant to be seen – larger than life and accompanied by a live score!”
— The Huffington Post
A queer coming-of-age adventure told through stop-motion animation and a live pop-rock band.
It’s an animated film. It’s a live pop-rock band. It’s a queer, coming-of-age road trip like none other. It’s Torrey Pines.
Raised by a schizophrenic single mother who was consumed by conspiracy theories and family dysfunction, award-winning filmmaker Clyde Petersen’s adolescent years unfolded like a surreal and confusing dream. Based on a true story, Torrey Pines tells a trans-queer-punk, coming-of-age story, rich with ‘90s pop-culture references—everything from Star Trek to Nintendo. Seattle’s own Your Heart Breaks performs the quirky, catchy, and moving score, featuring cellist Lori Goldston, a one time member of such beloved bands such as Nirvana and Mirah.
