Description

Two broke 20-somethings arrive in Los Angeles to see a Filipina fortune teller known for her conjoined crystal balls. The penny-counting friends are from San Bernardino, one of the hardest hit US cities of the subprime mortgage housing crisis. What does it mean to dream when the future is foreclosed? When Nao and Loop can’t afford the fortuneteller’s steep fee, her assistant takes pity on them (mistaking the two queer Asians for middle school students.) As they gaze into the magic orbs, each is confronted with their own set of secret desires – enacted within the space of a song. For Nao: a lush, Edwardian fantasia brimming with love, poetry, and seduction. For Loop: a mundane city bus ride, first interrupted by a gaggle of musical teenagers and then suddenly, a stunning pair of queer Angels. Musically framed by Afro-futurist electronica and soulful Americana of the 1940s to 1960s, Golden Golden’s queer experimental visions open up spaces for desiring, belonging, and becoming— across Asian, Black, and Latinx imaginaries.
