GIRLS ON FILM 2: BEFORE DAWN is a compilation of short films focussing on gay and transgender issues.

Sex

In one short film a woman talks in graphic terms about having sex with a date, including references to oral sex, vaginal penetration and 'fisting'. These references are accompanied by close-up sight of bare breasts and female genitals pressed up against a sheet of glass. Hands run over the breasts and fingers occasionally stroke across the exposed labia.

There is also a scene of sexual violence and abuse in which a young woman is pinned to her bed by an older man as she struggles against him. They are interrupted.

Language

There are occasional uses of very strong language ('c**t') and strong language ('f**k').

Other issues include strong violence as people are left dead on streets with big pools of blood around their heads. They return to life as zombies and a man's lip is bitten off. Another man is stabbed through the bottom of his mouth with a pair of scissors. There is some discriminatory language and behaviour in an animation designed to draw attention to the discrimination faced by LGBT groups and other minorities. Some gay characters are depicted as stereotypically 'camp' and a black character is called 'Sambo' by a policeman.
