"Beyond Repair": a homophobic family tries to put a gay son through a conversion ritual (short film)



Chadkee Skrikker directs the disturbing short film “Beyond Repair”, which seems to be filmed in Spain, but is in English, from KinoBuro (12 min).
  
  
A young man in a homophobic family is outed and forced to live with his hostile brother, who puts him through elaborate rituals, including having heterosexual sex and then participating in an act of honor-based violence.
 
The rituals are suggestive but not filmed very carefully. 
   
The ending was rather ambiguous.
