Goodbye Seventies
Set in the 1970s, the golden age of gay pornography in New York City, this new film from provocative cult director Todd Verow is guaranteed to stimulate gay cinema and gay porn fans in equal measure. Goodbye Seventies follows a promising young chorus boy who is injured and told he will never dance again. Distraught and unimpressed with the “art” films playing seedy Times Square theaters, he gets his friends and lovers together and they start making their own hardcore movies. Against all odds, the films are wildly successful… until drugs, AIDS and cheap video technology bring it all crashing down. We’ve always been big fans of Verow’s work, but this sexy – and sexually explicit – new treat is one of our favorites yet.

 

Men of Hard Skin
Teenager Ariel (Wall Javier) lives a seemingly quiet life with his father and sister on their picturesque farm in a rural part of Buenos Aires. However, unbeknownst to his family, Ariel has been abused for years by Omar (German Tarantino), his neighborhood priest. Having long confused his mistreatment for affection, Ariel tries to free himself from their relationship and soon embarks on a secret affair with one of the male workers on his father’s property. Meanwhile, as Omar continues to succumb to his urges, he forms a friendship with a much older priest who finds himself wrestling with similar desires. Defiantly unsentimental, Men of Hard Skin is an exploration of sex and power which poses many tough questions.

 

Always Say Yes
This sexually explicit film follows Hector (Gerardo Torres Rodriguez), a gay man living in Mexico who travels from Hermosillo to Mexico City with the hope of posing naked for Feral, a sex-positive photography collective. Leaving both his friends and his inhibitions behind, Hector is determined to experiment and play out all of his various desires in real life, without limits. He makes a promise to himself to always say yes to every new situation, no matter what the consequences may be. A raw and explicit examination of sexuality and desire, Always Say Yes features brave, completely uninhibited performances from a game cast. Warning: This film contains graphic scenes of unsimulated sex acts.

 

The Breeding
Winner of the Best Feature Award at the 2018 Harlem International Film Festival, The Breeding is a bold thriller about a young African American artist whose obsession with a taboo fetish leads to life-altering consequences. The story centers around a discontent, sex-positive queer cartoonist named Thomas (Marcus Bellamy), whose artistic inspiration comes from erotic escapades he keeps hidden from his loving boyfriend (David J. Cork). A chance restroom encounter with a recently divorced financier (Joe MacDougal) leaves Thomas curious about exploring the taboo fetish of “race play.” But when the game becomes all too problematically real, chilling actions are taken that will change the trajectory his life.

Teenager Ariel (Wall Javier) lives a seemingly quiet life with his father and sister on their picturesque farm in a rural part of Buenos Aires. However, unbeknownst to his family, Ariel has been abused for years by Omar (German Tarantino), his neighborhood priest.

Having confused his mistreatment for romantic affection, Ariel takes it upon himself to free himself from their relationship and soon embarks on a secret affair with one of the male workers on his father’s property. Meanwhile, as Omar continues to succumb to his urges, he forms a friendship with a much older priest who finds himself wrestling with similar desires.

Defiantly unsentimental in its approach, writer-director Jose Celestino Campusano‘s richly textured exploration of sex, power and ecclesiastical abuse in Argentine society is a complex and often confrontational piece of work, posing many tough questions without resorting to easy answers.
