I Am Happiness on Earth
Speaking of Mexican men, Julián Hernández, one of Mexico’s premier LGBTQ filmmakers (Raging Sun, Raging Sky), helmed this tale of a film director struggling with the line between his sexually charged reality and equally arousing cinematic creations. Will lead character Emiliano (Hugo Catalan) be able to sustain his relationship, or will his lust for beauty and meaning lead him elsewhere? Furious couplings between gorgeous men include an exhilaratingly explicit play-within-a-play. Hernández’s boldly poetic romance compares with such films as Fellini’s 8½, Godard’s Contempt and others exploring the connections between love, sex, creativity and filmmaking.
Dean (Lucas Near-Verbrugghe), a graphic designer living in Los Angeles, notices a sudden change in his vision. Around the same time, Alex (Aaron Costa Ganis), an ex-lover from 15 years prior, contacts him unexpectedly in hopes of rekindling their relationship. When the two meet at a vacation house in the desert near Joshua Tree, secrets are revealed and passions are rekindled that threaten to upend both of their lives. Forty-eight hours later, neither will ever be the same. Written and directed by Tim Kirkman, Lazy Eye is a thoughtful and thoroughly sexy romance about roads not taken, unfinished business and the struggle of adjust to progressive lenses.
Coffee House Chronicles: The Movie
Based on the beloved and successful web series, Coffee House Chronicles: The Movie takes a close look at different LGBTQ people who make contact with each other in a variety of ways – the Internet, via social media, and face to face – in coffee houses, and how their relationships grow and evolve over time. The movie unfolds in an anthology style, showcasing short, entertaining vignettes with a diverse set of characters. The cast faces that will be familiar to gay movie/series fans, like Drew Droege, Chris Salvatore, Darryl Stephens, Mark Cirillo and Nicholas Downs – and director Stewart Wade also makes sure to add a strong emphasis on the important social issues that face the LGBTQ community each day.
