Like Cattle Towards Glow
Acclaimed author Dennis Cooper and co-director Zac Farley‘s Like Cattle Towards Glow is a 93 minute film consisting of five independent, thematically and emotionally interconnected scenes. The film is a complex, intimate, strangely serene, wide-ranging, and always challenging exploration of sexual desire as a hiding place. In these unique, stylistically and temperamentally diverse scenes, sex makes a promise of something so intense and untenable to the characters that they feel they must enter it in secret – through an act of violence, or under the guise of an unrelated transaction, or by rationalizing its dangers away with the help of politics, or through utilizing it remotely as material for a purely aesthetic project. Like these characters, and like sex itself, Like Cattle Towards Glow is as deep, knowing, and unknowable as it is raucous, original, and explicit on the surface. John Waters called it “a real French tickler for the fucked-up literary set.”

Boy Undone
Two young men spend the night together after meeting the previous evening in a notorious gay club. The next day, however, the host wakes to find the boy he picked up bewildered and confused, unable to remember his name or anything about his past. Lacking any type of identification or obvious clues, the boys begin to search for the truth among fragments of memories that may or may not prove reliable. A chilling homoerotic thriller from Mexican writer-director Leopoldo Laborde, Boy Undone is queer guerrilla filmmaking at its most intense, featuring brave, bare-it-all-style performances from the game young performer’s at the film’s center. Warning: this film features scenes of graphic sexuality and tons of full-frontal male nudity. Viewer discretion is advised.

Absent
This stylish film from prolific director Marco Berger (the same guy behind Hawaii, Plan B, Sexual Tension: Volatile and Testosterone) follows Martin (Bromance star Javier De Pietro), a knowingly, even aggressively sexual sixteen-year-old locks his seductive sights on Sebastian (Carlos Echevarría), his recently engaged, thirty-something swimming instructor. Faking an injury, Martin manages to trick his teacher into letting him spend the night at his apartment. As Sebastian begins to realize the possible sexual interest on the part of his student, he is conflicted. He is dismissive, but his curiosity is piqued by the boy’s overt advances. Though he knows it’s wrong, the increasingly troubled Sebastian soon beings questioning his own feelings for young Martin. Winner of the coveted Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the Berlin Film Festival, Absent is not a simple boy-meets-boy drama. It’s a taut, and at times, incredible sexy drama of repressed passion, guilt and regret. There are no easy answers in this edgy sexual thriller.

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.

I Miss You When I See You

He soon decides to return to Hong Kong. Jamie, who has been enjoying a steady relationship with his girlfriend, finds his feelings for Kevin reawakened and growing stronger.

Fourplay
An eye-opening gem of a short film collection, Fourplay offers up four short stories both hilarious and emotionally powerful. Each of the individual films follow seemingly ordinary characters who find themselves thrust into some very unusual sexual situations. In Skokie, a closeted woman’s crush on her minister’s wife erupts during a weekend of dog-sitting. In Austin, a young couple discovers a kinky way to keep their relationship alive. In Tampa, a man with an extremely small penis finds his nirvana in a public restroom. And in San Francisco, a cross-dressing sex-worker faces a challenging assignment with a elderly quadriplegic man. Fourplay handles a wide variety of extremely taboo subjects with great sensitivity and depicts sex acts as potentially cathartic moments in our lives. It’s also riotously funny and deeply heartfelt.

He Loves Me
Director Konstantinos Menelaou‘s sexually explicit new relationship drama He Loves Me is an exploration of the unconventional nature of love and its ability to survive against the fear of loneliness, psychological traumas and the problems that come with life in the big city. The collapsing relationship shared by two men finds an outlet for escape on an isolated beach. Once there, they feel free to expose their deepest emotions. Their wounded relationship might not survive the vacation, but it’s certainly a glorious place to feel things out. Super-sexy lead actors Sanuye Shoteka and Hermes Pittakos are artists and performers who were a real-life couple at the time that He Loves Me was shot – and the script for the film was greatly influenced by their relationship.

Rift
Paying homage to classic art-house horror films like Robert Wise’s The Haunting and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now, Rift is an enticing, well-acted and expertly-directed mystery-thriller from Iceland that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Gunnar (Björn Stefánsson) receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar (Sigurður Þór Óskarsson), months after they parted ways. Einar sounds distraught, like he’s about to do something terrible to himself, so Gunnar drives to the secluded cabin where Einar is holed up and soon discovers there is more going on than he imagined. As the two come to terms with their broken relationship, some other person seems to be lurking outside the cabin, wanting to get inside. Eerie and stylishly crafted, Rift was a big hit at film fests – not just LGBT festivals, but general horror film festivals as well, where it has earned rave reviews.
