Alluvial Releases Second Collection of Lesbian Shorts
Girls' View Series Continues with a Variety of Themes and Award-Winning Content

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Los Angeles, California, June 1st, 2009 - Alluvial will release ,Girls' View 2, its second volume of award-winning, lesbian-themed short films on DVD June 16, 2009. Isolation, self-acceptance, trust, friendship, self-discovery, love and relationships are just a few of the themes in this sexy, heartwarming, sad and even chilling collection of shorts.

Major retailers and distributors including Amazon.com, TLA Video, Book of the Month Club, Pacific Media Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Inc., 10percent.com, Logo Online Shop and Netflix as well as local community retailers throughout the world carry the first release of Girls' View.

The collection begins with The Rules, Laura Black's seductive story about a lonely, bored housewife who gets in over her head in a phone sex game with a mysterious woman. The film won an impressive six awards including:


Winner - ''Grand Festival Award - Short Feature'' - Berkeley Video and Film Festival (Berkeley, USA)

Winner - ''Outstanding Artistic Achievement'' - Telluride IndieFest (Telluride, USA)
Winner - ''Outstanding Artistic Achievement'' - Key West IndieFest (Key West, USA)

Hot girls kissing in a pool; what more could a girl want? How about love, acceptance and a sense of normality? Kelly Carpenter's film DYKE! about two schoolgirls comes next in the collection and addresses themes of isolation, self-acceptance and trust. Kate releases Billy's inner desires, only to abandon her in the crazy world that she lead her into; can Billy survive this realm alone? All Billy wants is to fit in. Taken by the hand and left alone to face her fears, who is she afraid of?

Amy Bronson's Backstroke follows telling the story of two women, Rome and Julie, who end up in the same psychiatric ward a month after their relationship's sudden end. Julie learns that Rome has amnesia, and thus no recollection of their past relationship. The story unfolds to reveal the sudden end to the relationship between the two women and how Julie decides to deal with past and current consequences. Backstroke garnered two awards including Best Student Film at the Reel Women Film Festival in Los Angeles as well as the Audience Award at the Fear No Film Festival at the Utah Arts Festival in Salt Lake City. It also was selected as one of Curve Magazine's Best Women's Shorts.

Licorice, by Peter Scobie, next tells a story about a friendship that forms between a heart-broken fiancée and a lost teenage girl as they both discover the vast space in the NSW Blue Mountains and themselves. This coming-of-age drama shows us that there is a world beyond what we know.

The collection ends with Georgia Versluys' film Snap about a beautiful girl's life that is turned upside down when a chance meeting sends her spinning into inner turmoil. Should she deny her true feelings for the sake of common acceptance, or follow her heart to unconditional happiness?

A trailer, high-resolution imagery and a press kit with additional information about the short films can be viewed online at: www.VillageLighthouse.com/GirlsView2. The suggested retail price of Girls' View 2 is $22.98 and the running time is approximately 77 minutes.
