Set within the luxurious confines of a modern vacation villa in the Portuguese countryside, the stylish new thriller Sunburn examines a close-knit group friends who share a long (and slowly teased-out) history. Our four protagonists come together for a peaceful weekend retreat by the pool. Unfortunately, their calm is quickly shattered by a phone call from David, a former friend, previously ostracized by the group, who seems to have left a strong and lasting impression on each of them. After a long absence, he’s back in town and planning to stop by. It’s at this point that Sunburn starts ramping up the dread. A reckoning, of some sort, is coming. What happened between David and the rest of the group to inspire such mixed emotions?
Feral: Season One
Best friends Billy and Daniel (Jordan Nichols and Seth Daniel) live together in a Midtown Memphis bungalow. While trying to live together in harmony, pay the rent and become part of an artistic queer community, the pair find themselves dealing with difficult emotional issues – especially when it comes to finding and losing love. Created by Morgan Jon Fox, the writer-director behind the acclaimed low-budget romance Blue Citrus Hearts and the riveting doc This is What Love in Action Looks Like, the positively gorgeous gay series Feral is an absolute must-see! Featuring beautiful cinematography and fluid editing, the show offers a passionate portrayal of young, gay people struggling to find love and meaning in a confusing world.
After learning she has only three months left to live, Morgan (Adriana Mather) turns her protected middle-class life upside-down. That is when she meets Jordan (Zach Villa), a rebellious, gender-defying artist. Together they embark on the adventure of a lifetime. With a hand-held camera, the pair document their time together, creating a lasting record of what and who really matters in life. Though the film deals with tragedy, Honeyglue, which was inspired by real events, manages to celebrate life while staring death directly in the face. It also shows that a leading man doesn’t have to be your “typical” leading man. He can be a complex gender-bending character… and audiences will find him equally attractive and appealing.
From rising auteur Eusebio Pastrana comes this tapestry of love stories set against the colorful backdrop of Madrid in 1995 – re-imagined here as a city where cynicism doesn’t exist. At the heart of the film are Garate (Alejandro Tous) and Omar (Olav Fernandez), a gay couple looking for a woman to mother their child. The obstacle they face are often achingly realistic, yet their story also presents a utopian vision of a world in which all couples – whether gay, straight, or in between – reside happily within the full spectrum of modern families, without interference from any intolerant parties. Starting with the goal of capturing 100 different kinds of kisses, Spinnin’ sets off on a cinematic fight of fancy – complete with dance sequences and slapstick humor – that constantly toys with the viewer’s expectations.
Between Something & Nothing
Prolific director Todd Verow (Deleted Scenes, Vacationland, Age of Consent) presents this sexy outing with a heavy dose of autobiography. Cute, small-town Joe (Tim Swain) goes off to study at a prestigious New England arts college. He makes fast friends with freewheeling Jennifer (Julia Frey), who also struggles with the high cost of living, and beyond work-study employment they resort to less orthodox methods of paying the bills, including petty larceny. Enter Ramon (Gil Bar-Sera), an enigmatic, punky hustler who inspires Joe to give prostitution a whirl – and sparks a crush while he’s at it. Sex, drugs, rich kids, music, sketching, nude models and queer discovery – this is one true art school confidential. In crafting Between Something and Nothing, Verow drew from his own experiences as student – and yes, rent boy – at Rhode Island School of Design.
