Now Available: Barrio Boy

A Latino barber in a macho world faces a tough road ahead when he develops an attraction for a handsome stranger during a hot and sweaty New York City summer.

From director Dennis Shinners, Barrio Boy tells the story of Quique (Dennis Garcia), a Nuyorican barber living in a rapidly changing Brooklyn neighborhood who embarks on an erotically charged odyssey of self-discovery.

A chance encounter on a basketball court sparks an instant attraction with a handsome Irish stranger named Kevin (James Physick), who is passing through town to settle his late father’s affairs.

As their friendship blossoms, so do suspicions about the nature of their relationship, especially to the jealous eye of Cuz (Keet Davis), Quique’s childhood friend turned local bully.

Quique’s quest for love and self-acceptance is further realized as he navigates his way through the complex and often messy layers of sexuality, family, friends, race and class.
