aGLIFF presents Platonic & Plates
The All Genders, Lifestyles, and Identities Film Festival (aGLIFF) will present Platonic & Plates, a virtual evening including dinner, music and the web series P L A T O N I C with director Erin Buckley and musician Tina G.
Recipes, cocktails, and conversation by Tina G will accompany Buckley’s mini-episodes. The evening will conclude with a live Q&A with Buckley and a virtual mini set performed by Tina G.
P L A T O N I C is a 10-episode series revisiting a pre-pandemic New York, before dating became even more complicated. In short five- to six-minute vignettes, Olive (Summer Spiro), a gay Brooklynite, and her straight friend, Billy (Ryan King), waft in and out of relationships in their search for connection and intimacy. They navigate the sexual fluidity and boundaries of modern companionship, including open relationships, bisexuality, and flirtatious friends (who may be more than friends).
Viewers will be able to follow along with Tina, to enjoy their food and drink while watching the web series. Tina G will present a menu of fancy fromage sandwiches along with three delicious takes on a Bloody Mary. Full recipes for the three sandwiches and Bloody Marys are available here.
