Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive In Presents

Heart Breaks Open

Model queer activist and poet, Jesus (Maximillian Davis) prides himself in his work with the
Seattle LGBT community. At the same time, Jesus is having unprotected sex and cheating
on Johnny, his long-time partner (Samonte Cruz). Jesusʼs world implodes when he
discovers that he is HIV positive, forcing him to confront his innermost fears, his relationship
with his ex-boyfriend, and a future living with HIV. Faced with the unknown, Jesus is pulled
from the brink of self-destruction by Sister Alysa Trailer (Brian Peters), a [drag] nun who
leads him down a path of self-discovery

"This is what queer cinema needs to be--homegrown, authentic, brutally honest.." (Seattle Gay Scene)

"Hearts Break Open is a powerfully acted, achingly beautiful story about the love, and accountability, that binds our community together." (NewFest Film Festival)
