About Torrey Pines
It's an animated film. It's a live pop-rock band. It's a queer, coming-of-age road trip like none other. It's TORREY PINES .
Raised by a schizophrenic single mother who was consumed by conspiracy theories and family dysfunction, award-winning filmmaker Clyde Petersen’s adolescent years unfolded like a surreal and confusing dream. Based on a true story, TORREY PINES tells a trans-queer-punk, coming-of-age story, rich with ‘90s pop-culture references—everything from Star Trek to Nintendo. Seattle's own Your Heart Breaks performs the quirky, catchy, and moving score, featuring cellist Lori Goldstein, a one time member of such beloved bands such as Nirvana and Mirah.
Recommended for ages 13 and up.
