Official synopsis

Dustin and her gang are partying hard in an abandoned warehouse. As the night goes on, the collective euphoria gradually gives way to individual melancholy. For her first professional short film, Naïla Guiguet brings together some of the actors and actresses from Alexis Langlois’ “Terror, Sisters!”. With this sweet and electrifying film, she imposes a singular and already precious voice in the landscape of French queer cinema. “Dustin” offers both life-saving intelligent screenwriting and great finesse in interpretation.

— Mélissa Blanco
