The Schoolmaster Games
Desires are running wild at the Saint Sebastian, a high school populated by gay men where everyone is completely free to express their sexuality. At the start of the school year, the much-desired Charles (Christian Arnold) enters into a secret sexual power game orchestrated by the strict schoolmaster (Johan Ehn), who is tortured by memories from a time long before the erotic acceptance that currently prevails at the school. When the competition for the prestigious “Winter Procession” tightens, friendships crack and their whole utopian existence begins to fall apart piece by piece. From Swedish director Ylva Forner, The Schoolmaster Games is a colorful, original and thrillingly homoerotic high school melodrama like no film ever before.


Wild Tigers I Have Known
Visionary director Cam Archer portrays the lives of teens in awkward gay love. Originally released in 2006, Wild Tigers I Have Known was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival and LGBTQ film festivals around the globe. The film follows Logan (Malcolm Stumpf), a middle schooler who is crushing on an older classmate named Rodeo (Patrick White). As the pair spend time together, Logan’s infatuation grows. Exploring gender fluidity for the first time, he invents a female persona and starts making sexually provocative phone calls to Rodeo at night, hoping to get even closer to the object of his affection. For the film’s 15th Anniversary, Altered Innocence has put together a restored version of this experimental queer classic.


The Lawyer
Life just drifts by for corporate lawyer Marius (Eimutis Kvosciauskas)… until he finds an unexpected connection with the dark and handsome Ali (Dogac Yildiz), an incredibly attractive young Syrian refugee who makes his living as a sex-cam worker. After Marius’s estranged father passes away, his infatuation intensifies. It isn’t long before he’s completely obsessed. He inevitably flies to Belgrade to meet Ali with in person, in hopes of a romantic week with his sexy Arab prince. Although, off-camera, things might not be exactly as they seemed. An intense romantic drama, The Lawyer is the newest film from prolific director Romas Zabarauskas, the same filmmaker behind Porno Melodrama and You Can’t Escape Lithuania.


Everything is Free
Ivan (writer-director Brian Jordan Alvarez) has relocated to a coastal town in Colombia to focus on painting. After some time apart, his straight best friend Christian (Peter Vack) comes to visit along with his younger brother Cole (Morgan Krantz). The initial pleasantries of beach-side camping and late-night partying fade quickly – especially after Ivan and Cole start secretly sleeping together. When Christian finds out, the otherwise idyllic summer affair brings out difficult and surprising emotions in not just the three men, but also their diverse circle of expats and tourists. Frank and playful, Everything Is Free navigates gay cinema tropes with self-awareness, humor, gravity and a very modern sensibility.


Hidden Away
In the bathroom of a crowded nightclub, teenagers Ibra and Rafa (Adil Koukouh and Germán Alcarazu) cross paths. As his friends try and set him up with a local girl, Rafa’s thoughts remain with Ibra. Meanwhile, Ibra finds himself isolated in the big city, treated like an outsider, with the threat of deportation hanging over his head. When the two boys meet again, they form a close bond and decide to work together to find a way for Ibra to escape his fate and live the life he wants. Against a backdrop of societal pressures and racial tensions, this arresting debut boasts two charming performances from its young male leads, expertly capturing the fears and excitement of first love.
