Against a backdrop of electrocution, dominance, and scientific precision, wasps nest in an abandoned refrigerator, eyelashes flutter, and curtains blow in open windows. Adapting Stanley Milgram's 1963 experiment on obedience to authority, Gold Moon, Sharp Arrow explores how queer communities reenact, resist, and respond to assimilation, coercion, and trauma.
