Camp Belvidere, a short film by Astrid Ovalles
Astrid Ovalles has recently shared her famous short film online. Her work was premiered on YouTube Saturday, February 9th. Camp Belvidere is a lesbian romance set in the 1950s about the private life of Camp Leader Rose and her forbidden encounter with Nurse Gin. It depicts the journey and evolution of a friendship into a romance between two women when their rapport would have been unlikely.
