Full Text: Left Lane is the story of a journey that spans longer than the 92 minutes that it shows for. It's filmed like the video diary of Alix Olsen who is an American lesbian activist and spoken word poet. Left Lane takes you on a trip, through the past and the present of human rights and feminist movements, as seen through the eyes of Alix and her crew.

This film is the chronicle of Alix's belief that an alternative message must be personally broadcast to the little known, rarely reached section of American society by extensive touring, festivals, marches and poetry competitions. Alix's passion for what she does and what she believes in reaches beyond the screen and grabs you. Watch this.


Directed by Samantha Farinella Documentary 92 min Reviewed by Sheena Magenya
