Coming Soon: Knife+Heart

A delightfully strange and stylish throwback to the era of giallo thrillers (with a decidedly homoerotic twist), Knife+Heart is the gay cinema crown jewel of 2019 so far. The film has earned numerous raves from critics, our favorite of which comes from Katie Walsh in the Los Angeles Times who said “This magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy.”

Set in Paris during the summer of 1979, the film is focused around Anne (French pop star Vanessa Paradis), a somewhat rough-hewn woman who produces third-rate gay porn. After her editor and lover Lois (Kate Moran) leaves her, she tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flaming sidekick Archibald (Nicolas Maury). But when one of her actors is brutally murdered, Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down.

Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Knife+Heart is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to the 1970s horror-thrillers of Brian De Palma, Dario Argento, William Friedkin and more. The film was directed by Yann Gonzalez and co-stars Félix Maritaud and Romane Bohringer.

Photo Gallery: The Skin of the Teeth

When Josef (Pascal Arquimedes) arrives at John’s (Donal Brophy) apartment for a date, their prickly energy slowly gives way to genuine chemistry. But after swallowing a pill with mind-bending effects, Josef quickly slides helplessly down a rabbit hole of temporal sleight-of-hand, plunged into a surreal interrogation of everything he is.

From writer-director Matthew Wollin, the stylish and mind-bending new thriller The Skin of the Teeth has been described as “Get Out meets Grindr” (Newfest) and “Hypnotic and compelling” (My New Plaid Pants). The Film Stage said it “brims with sensuality and playfulness.”

Class A
Mind-altering and terrorizing, the new twelve-minute short film Class A is set in modern-day New York City… but the ultimate setting is another world in which our LGBTQ addicts, Jenny (Krystal Joy Brown), Dan (Kieran Mulcare) and Brad (played by writer/director Cameron Moir), enter when interacting with their drug of choice. The film focuses on three drugs in particular, each personified by an actor: Cocaine (Alexander Quiroga), Heroin (Pooya Mohseni) and Crystal Meth (Michael Cavadias). Each drug has its own landscape in which the addict enters and cannot escape until the drug leaves them. Heroin, being a vast black eternal comb, Coke, a stark, white, fast moving space and Crystal Meth, a red, steamy dungeon. Clever and thought-provoking, we can’t wait to see what this director does next.
