Grab someone you love (and someone else too) and watch the trailer for We Are Thr3e

In the progressive new indie We Are Thr3e, Nacho (Carlos Etchevers), an accountant and seemingly all-around average guy, meets Ana (Flor Dragonetti), a recently divorced and self-confident young woman. Then the two meet the charismatic bartender Sebastian (Juan Manuel Martino), who starts flirting with both of them. Despite their doubts, Nacho and Ana accept Sebastian’s invitation to spend the night at his place, where nothing happens. A few days later, they decide to go on a weekend trip to a secluded farm. And it seems like it will be a fun one-night stand, until Sebastian confesses that he desires a long-term relationship with a man and a woman together.

 

“Since growing up, we are under the influence of all kind of romantic stories, usually starring a woman and a man,” said writer-director Marcelo Briem Stamm (Solo, Sexual Tension: Volatile). “My main goal is to balance that offer of visions of love by creating stories in different genres that explore relationships beyond traditional conventions.”

Writer/Director Steve McLean talks about his sexy new film Postcards from London

Postcards from London is writer/director Steve McLean‘s homage to a lost Soho, a Soho which no longer exists. Or perhaps it only ever existed in his dreams. So instead of trying to re-create a specific bygone era, the Soho of his youth in the 1970’s and early 80’s, he created a gorgeous, eye-catching Soho of the imagination, a Soho of memory.

 

The film tells the story of a beautiful young man named Jim (Beach Rats star Harris Dickinson) who, having traveled from the suburbs, finds himself in Soho where he falls in with The Raconteurs – a gang of unusual high class male escorts who specialize in post-coital conversation. From shy novice to highly sought-after escort (and, eventually, artist’s muse), Jim would be the toast of the town if it wasn’t for his annoying affliction. He suffers from Stendhal Syndrome, a rare condition which causes him to hallucinate and faint when he encounters real works of art. But when Jim is roped into the world of detecting art forgery, could his condition bring about his downfall?

As his extended family comes together to celebrate the holiday, the combined suffocating Chilean heat, free-flowing drinks and repressed desire contribute to the eruption of long-held secrets.
