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.
Featuring an amazing cast of hysterically funny women, including John Waters muse Mink Stole and the late, great Karen Black, Stuck! is director Steve Balderson‘s homage to film noir women-in-prison movies. Faithfully re-producing the genre with a modern, tongue-in-cheek twist, expect all the hallmarks of a classic prison flick complete with a wrongly accused heroine, hard boiled dames, diabolical alliances, forbidden love, cat-fighting cuties, a sadistic warden, and corrupt prison guards. The film follows Daisy (Starina Johnson), an innocent young woman framed for killing her mother. Condemned by the press and the public, Daisy is found guilty of murder and sentenced to die by hanging. This jazzy, finger-snapping, broads-behind-bars film is a throwback to another era, with terse Tennessee Williams-style verbal sparring, non-stop action and enough bad-girl jailhouse hi-jinks to make the audience lose the distinction between good and evil.
During a time of turmoil in Ecuador, sixteen-year-old Juan Pablo (Juan Manuel Arregui) travels to the family hacienda in the Andes, where his uncle (Peky Andino), facing a corruption scandal, has taken refuge with his wife and teenage children. There he meets Juano (Diego Andrés Paredes), an enigmatic and very self-assured seventeen-year-old black-metal fan from the nearby pueblo. As these two young men get to know each other a little bit better, Juano begings to open up Juan Pablo’s eyes to a new and liberating universe. As his country and family begins to seem like it is heading for the abyss, the budding friendship between the two boys develops into a fragile romance… and Juan Pablo starts to define himself, despite the chaotic nature of his surroundings. A sweet romantic fable of young love against the odds, Holiday bubbles with tension and excitement.
Get ready to dance to the beat of your own drum! Life doesn’t seem to be going according to plan for hip-hop choreographer Raj (Sachin Bhatt) until he meets Jyoti (Lilette Dubey), an attractive older woman who suggests that he try starting a dance class for Indian women. While unsuccessful at first, Raj’s class begins to grow with students like Laxmi (Pooja Kumar), a housewife new to the country, Puja (Mansi Patel), an wildly unenthused high school student, and Vincent (Mehul Shah), a young gay teen who wants to dance regardless of his father’s objections. Come discover friendship, family and maybe even yourself with this heart-warming film – packed to the brim with infectiously rhythmic and pulsating Bollywood tunes!
A trashy and delicious, totally erotic forbidden love story, Wild Awakening is equal parts drama and gay soap opera! Siblings Emma and Toni (Júlia Hernández and Fabián Castro) inherit their family’s horse riding school – a place where men are seemingly forever running around shirtless. Though they’re the rightful owners, neither Emma nor Toni seem well equipped to keep the business going. Emma is still young and Toni has an uncontrolled and promiscuous gay sex life – which is the subject of much gossip within their close-knit community. Leadership responsibilities fall to Ramon (Richie Ormon), the capable foreman. Things get tricky, though, when both Emma and Toni fall in love with his smoking hot, sexually fluid son Aaron (Christian Blanch). Stacked full of the hottest Latino men you’ve ever laid eyes on, and dripping with sensuality, Wild Awakening is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on!
