Coming Soon: Happiness Adjacent

It’s time to get excited for Happiness Adjacent, the ninth feature film produced by Guest House Films and directed by award-winning filmmaker Rob Williams, the same highly prolific indie writer-director behind Long-Term Relationship, Back Soon, 3-Day Weekend, Role/Play, The Men Next Door, Out to Kill, Shared Rooms and Make the Yuletide Gay!

 

Happiness Adjacent explores the romance between Hank (Adam Fried), a nice gay Jewish boy traveling alone on a tropical cruise, and Kurt (Ian Dick), a bisexual man vacationing with his wife, Kate (Rachel Alig). While Hank isn’t looking for a relationship, he can’t deny his immediate attraction to Kurt and their intense connection. As Hank struggles to get past his own issues and his past failed relationships, he can’t help but wonder if Kurt is secretly looking for a way to break up the monotony of his seemingly stale marriage. Is this just a vacation fling, or is it a chance for both men to find true happiness?

Available Light

2015, United States, France and Germany

Available Light is a sexy, funny and even sometimes disturbing experimental feature film by prolific writer/director/actor/artist Todd Verow – the same guy behind Frisk, Anonymous, Vacationland and Bad Boy Street. The film follows numerous unconnected people in different cities as they try to escape their loneliness through love, lust or some combination of both. The film was shot in real locations using only available light (hence the title). The viewer is both a voyeur, watching the characters in intimate situations that are not meant to be seen, and an active participant, imagining what the characters are going through and making connections between them that may or may not be real. And, as anyone who is familiar with Verow‘s previous work could probably guess, there is plenty of hot male flesh on display.
