WATCH: High-School Jock Gets Dis-“Oriented” In Joel Schumacher Short “Man In The Mirror”

PBS launched its first online film festival this month and a number of the featured shorts address issues relating to the LGBT experience. In “Man in the Mirror,” above, a Puerto Rican high-schooler in New York sees his status as a popular jock threatened by rumors that he’s gay. Is it just idle gossip or is Jason not the man he sees in the mirror?

Sponsored by Scenarios USA, which connects aspiring filmmakers with established talents, “Man in the Mirror was written by Treviny Marie Colon and directed by legendary out helmer Joel Schumacher (St. Elmo’s FireBatman Forever). Other noteworthy entries include “This Gay and Age” and “Sunshine: Single Dads,” a short about a single gay father that debuts on the site next week.

Log on, watch some flicks and vote on which should nab the win the People’s Choice Award.

      God, the dialogue was painful. The lead character was pretty great though.
