Fiction and truth are often closer than people want, or care, to admit. In this selection of films that skirt the line of reality, the ties that connect us all become evident. Selections include Kevin Walker’s Ying and Yang, in which a young man’s attraction to both his girlfriend and his best guy friend is told through spoken word; Stefani Saintonge’s Seventh Grade, which shows a young girl’s transition from playing with dolls to bawdy adolescence; and actor-director Gbenga Akinnagbe’s Stop+Frisk, a film about the NYPD’s systemic policy toward black and Latino men.

The full lineup is as follows:

Cakes Da Killa: No Homo (dir. Ja'Tovia Gary)
