ESTUARIES is a narrative film in pre-production about a community in loss. It is set in 2017, months after a car crashed through the front window of a non-commercial art space called Estuaries, killing Bdalak, an adored queer performance artist, and three others. Bdalak’s partner Eli (Lior Shamriz), a musician with a past as an activist in Israel, now spends his time adrift in Los Angeles, communing with others over his grief and struggling with his visa. He soon falls into an exploitative trap set by the Machiavellian white curator organizing his partner’s retrospective, who he feels can help solve his visa problems.
