Small Town Secrets

From: Frameline

A highly textured film that travels back to the early 1980s, Small Town Secrets documents a womanís exploration of her childhood growing up with closeted gay parents in a small, mid-western town. By weaving together a collection of home movies and conversations with her parents recorded via web cam, Small Town Secrets remembers why keeping it a secret felt like the only option.
