2017, United States
We first meet Jack (Conor Donnally), a homeless hustler with a smart mouth and impulsive tendencies, in New York City, turning tricks on the evening before his eighteenth birthday. He spends most of his time in a world of often abusive, but affluent, eccentrics. His only ally is his boyfriend Tom (Sean Ormond). Jack soon sees an opportunity to make a better life for himself by taking a trip to Miami with a client named Ken (Terrance Murphy). At first, Ken appears more honest and caring than the usual john, even winning Jack’s trust… until Jack finds him on a Skype call with his never-mentioned wife. His faith in humanity smashed yet-again, Jack steals Ken’s drugs and handgun. Embarking on a drug- binge, he encounters the slimiest characters Miami has to offer, falling deeper into the hole than he started.
2013, Cuba & Spain
Sexy and romantic, The Last Match is set in a poor, steamy Havana and centers on an intense love affair between two hitherto heterosexual young men. Reiner and Yosvani (Reinier Diaz and Milton Garcia) are best friends and soccer mates. Handsome Reinier, in order to support his mother, wife and their baby – as well as his gambling habit – prostitutes himself at night to older male foreigners along the waterfront. Meanwhile, the shy Yosvani is reluctantly engaged to a girl and lives with her and her bombastic loan shark father. After a furtive kiss at a nightclub, the two young men, barely containing their pent-up desire, follow up with a lusty roof top encounter – where the two quickly fall hard for each other. And as their love intensifies, the challenge is not with them but with the unforgiving outside world… a world they so desperately want to escape from. The two leads, Diaz and Garcia, are charismatic and unforgettable as the super-charged lovers in this heartbreaking drama.
2011, United States
Homicide detective Mark Rima (James Vallo) is about as homophobic as they get. Much to his discomfort, Rima’s shockingly laid-back, soap opera-obsessed Chief (Matthew Feeney) sets him up with Detective Chris Riant (Shawn Quinlan), the most flamboyantly gay partner imaginable. The two have been paired together to solve a new series of murders. It seems that someone, dressed as a nun, is killing off the members of a shirtless (and sacrilegious) gay boy-band called “The Ex-Choir Boys.” Rima and Riant must put aside their differences in an effort to save the young and adorable remaining members of the band – one of whom sees through Rima’s anti-gay attitude and takes a special interest in the older, curmudgeonly cop. A decidedly absurd, super-low-budget comedy/thriller hybrid, Sister Mary uses satire to skewer Catholicism and the conventions of the “buddy cop” movie.
2015, United States
Daniel Krueger (Chad Connell) is a highly successful young television journalist who is deeply haunted by a traumatic past. Suffering from panic attacks and paranoia, Daniel spends most of his days wishing he were someone else. He soon encounters a charming and attractive young man named Alexander (David Cameron) who seems to be everything Daniel secretly wishes he could be: confident, carefree and staggeringly beautiful. As the two man develop a relationship, Daniel realizes that his mind may be playing tricks on him – and that his personal demons might be a lot more powerful than he had hoped. An erotic psychological thriller, a tense drama, and, without question, a delicious guilty pleasure, Steel hits all the right buttons – and it hits them really HARD.
2007, United Kingdom
Terry (Marcus Proctor) is a reasonably “average-looking”, slightly insecure young man trying to navigate his way through the cutthroat world of gay life in London. Frustrated with his nights out at the clubs, he decides to surf for porn on the Internet… and perhaps try online dating. He stumbles across a special website called Manfinder, which miraculously transforms him into any type of man he wants to be for whatever dating encounter he feels like at the time. The only stipulation is that he has to find what he’s looking for by noon, or else. As Terry miraculously changes into the different variations of the man he would like to be, he goes on a series of dates, believing each will fulfill his wishes. But as each date fails and as the strike of the clock hits noon, Terry comes to the realization that he’s looking for love in all the wrong places. VGL-Hung! is a clever 22-minute short film from talented British filmmaker Max Barber.
