Coming Soon: Play the Devil

Gregory (Petrice Jones), a gifted working-class teenager from Paramin, a village located on one of the highest points of Trinidad, stars in a stage play that brings him to the attention of James (Gareth Jenkins), an affluent businessman. The two men strike up an uncanny friendship as James takes Greg under his wing, pushing him to discover himself professional, creatively, and intimately.

The Revival (c) Breaking Glass Pictures

Out This Week: The Revival

Out this week, the emotional new romance The Revival explores faith in the Deep South in a drama that asks how far you’re willing to go for the things you believe in. A desperate young man wanders into town looking for food and shelter. A progressive pastor tries to open the minds of his Old Testament congregation. A born again, recovering alcoholic fights for his church. A pastor’s wife looks to her gay husband for salvation. All of this comes to a scorching climax and an old time revival this small Arkansas town will never forget.

 

Keep the Lights On star Zachary Booth leads an intimate cast in this must-see drama, based on the play by award-winning writer Samuel Brett Williams. Speaking about the film and its Arkansas setting, director Jennifer Gerber said “It’s vital to me that my films tackle real stories from the south. Arkansas has a wealth of talent and beauty which hasn’t been explored to its full potential. In my opinion, The Revival is a story that needs to be told. Given the current political climate we are in, I want to delve into the psychology of a community of people that make up much of our country but very little of our popular culture.”

All Male, All Nude (c) Breaking Glass Pictures

All Male, All Nude

2017, United States

Award-winning filmmaker Gerald McCullouch (BearCity, Daddy) dives into the lives of men who work at America’s only all-nude, all-male gay strip club – located, oddly enough, in the heart of The Bible Belt! All Male, All Nude is a cutting-edge journey into the taboo world of male stripping. The men living this life can’t be boxed in, nor can those who pay to watch them shed their clothes. An unprecedented expedition, the film introduces staggeringly attractive array of gents (ranging in age from their 20s to their 40s) who expose themselves for the camera in more ways than one. Not only is there plenty of jaw-dropping nudity on display, but the men discuss the events that brought them to this controversial line of work: acting as delicious eye candy for gay men, straight women, business men in town for work, married couples and everyone in between.

Take a Voyage with Scud

A master of controversy, Hong Kong filmmaker Scud’s movies are bold, explicit, taboo-breaking and unafraid to examine the darkest sides of romance and longing. Much of his work, in fact, has faced major censorship in Hong Kong. “Homosexuality remains taboo in conservative Asia. LGBT films cannot be screened, nor officially distributed in China, rendering any such projects financially unviable, although my films have constantly topped the sales of the underground market,” the filmmaker said during a 2013 interview.

 

Scud (real name Danny Cheng Wan-Cheung) was born in mainland China during the Great Cultural Revolution and raised by his grandmother before moving to Hong Kong at the age of 13. He worked for multi-national companies, founded a publicly listed company, and acquired a bachelors degree thru part-time study. He then moved to Australia for a permanent residence. Realizing that he had fulfilled the dreams of others but not his own, he returned to Hong Kong in 2005 to start an independent film company, Artwalker, where he wrote and directed City without BaseballPermanent ResidenceAmphetamine, Love Actually… Sucks! and, most recently, Utopians (2015).

A highly-publicized film that originally aired on French television in 2016, this deeply affecting film is now available on DVD and VOD in the United States.
