Dir. Henry B. Roa (2009) 105 min.
Trance is a New York City poet on the eve of a showcase that could, at last, propel him into the mainstream. But when he discovers that his lover of eight years is having an affair, his life is turned upside down and his dreams are suddenly deferred. Cut to five years later. Trance has moved on with his life when he meets Alex and a new fire is sparked. Will Trance find love again? Will he regain his voice? Only time will tell. Through music, poetry and stunning visuals, “Naked White Roses” explores the subjects of following your dreams, gay and bicultural relationships, and love and loss.
