Biography

Director, teacher. OISE-trained Kelly O’Brien is a Toronto Super 8 advocate whose politically savvy experimental shorts have been a staple of queer film festivals since 1995. Perhaps most successful was the droll diaristic narrative After Morning (1999, 5), in which the filmmaker discovers she’s forgotten the stress around pregnancy risk when she’s stranded in a New York City weekend on a futile and expensive hunt for “morning-after” contraception after a certain slip with a guy and a broken condom.
