Writer-director Jesús Canchola Sánchez makes his assured feature debut with this emotionally complex tale of Atl (played by Sanchez), a quiet man living in rural Mexico, taking care of his devoted grandmother, Citalli, and verbally abusive mother, Soledad. Atl’s grandmother is unaware of his undercover affair with his longtime best friend, the handsome movie star Diego. But the two-faced, alcoholic Soledad knows and wastes no time in blackmailing her son in order to keep him compliant. Diego’s pregnant fiancée soon discovers the affair too, but in spite of her threats, Diego keeps seeing Atl on the side. In order to live truthfully, Atl must overcome his mother, Diego’s fiancée and the traditional community that surrounds him.
Brotherly Love is the movie adaptation of the Lambda Literary Award-nominated novel “Seventy Times Seven” by Salvatore Sapienza. Which “calling” do you answer? The one you feel from God or the one you feel about your true authentic self? That is the exact dilemma that Brother Vito (played by writer/director Anthony J. Caruso) is facing. He’s gay, but devoted to his less-than-accepting religious community. Soon, he must decide between becoming a Brother or declaring his love for Gabe (Derek Babb). Shot entirely in Austin, TX and with a local cast and crew, Brotherly Love is a fresh take on the traditional gay love story. You’ll also be happy to know that “The Golden Girls” plays a surprisingly significant role in this touching new romantic drama.
Avocado Toast: The Series
Ever wondered about your parents’ sex life? Neither did Molly and Elle (series leads Heidi Lynch and Perrie Voss) until both divorce and the coming-out process forced them to learn about certain familial sex-capades. After a lifetime of dating men, Molly, a thirty-one-year-old grade school teacher, surprises herself when she falls in love with a woman for the first time. When she finds the courage to come out as bisexual to her suburban parents, they reveal their own admission… they’re experienced swingers… and they throw sex parties. Meanwhile, Elle, a thirty-three-year-old creative director, is reeling after learning that her parents are divorcing and her mother, who also happens to be her boss, had an affair with a dude young enough to be Elle’s brother. Don’t miss the hilarious new LGBTQ comedy series Avocado Toast.
Spend some time with a group of raunchy young straight boys (with the exception of one) in the new twelve-minute short film Dudes from writer-director Noan Ribeiro. While a bunch of buddies (Michael Gmur, Jakeem Hawkins, Anthon Meyer and Alexander Volpi) hang out together in the living room playing video games, a homophobic comment is casually uttered. This prompts one brave, young jock to muscle up some courage and finally come out to his (sometimes inconsiderate) frat bro besties. When the news is unleashed, each of the boys has a different reaction. Will friendship win over discrimination?
