As part of their nationwide programme Testimonies, celebrating the work of Black British women and non-binary documentary filmmakers, We Are Parable and Aya Films are excited to present a programme of queer short documentaries in partnership with Bristol’s Blak Wave Productions.

Several generations of queer black women and non binary folk share their glorious moments in The Glorious Ones, fresh from its premiere at BFI Flare London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival; in Tegan, we discover the unbridled dedication of Bristolian Tegan Vincent-Cooke, a young black woman with cerebral palsy, to reach the 2024 Paralympics; and Twinkleberry tells the story of a school in a small West Country border town that had over 30 openly queer students in one year group between 2005 to 2012, produced - along with Tegan - as part of the inaugural Netflix Documentary Talent Fund.

Testimonies has been made possible with the support of the BFI Doc Society Fund. Find out more at weareparable.com/testimonies.
