A list of all films and interactive documentaries selected for IDFA throughout the years.
Come As You Are
COME AS YOU ARE portrays three people who have created an alter ego in which they indulge their (sexual) fantasies. Ron, in daily life a middle-aged man, is the enticing drag queen Candy; the timid John uses his alter ego of an urban cowboy to search his male, homosexual identity, and Bridget, finally, satisfies her need for sexual attractiveness through a fantasy figure, who is a cross between a comic heroine and a femme fatale. The three stories have been filmed in an appropriate style, the B-movie, the western and the film noir, respectively. Besides being a sketch of three complicated lives, the film raises questions about sexual identity, social 'masks' and the relationship between fantasy and reality.
