Coming Soon: Mutt

“A sexy, handsome, thoroughly New York film” – Vogue

“Authentic and emotionally potent” – Variety

“An exciting evolution for contemporary trans cinema” – IndieWire

“One of the very best LGBTQ movies, and just movies in general, of the year.” – Reeling Reviews

Fena (Lio Mehiel), a young trans guy bustling through life in New York City, is afflicted with an incessantly challenging day that resurrects ghosts from his past. Laundromats, subway turnstiles and airport transfers are the hectic background to this emotional drama that overlaps past, present and future.

Settling the disharmony of transitional upheaval in relationships familial, romantic and platonic is Fena’s task at hand, and his resulting juggling act is equal parts skillful, fumbling and honest. The poignant moments he finds between himself and others – as the distance between them closes – are warm, true and touching.

Vuk Lungulov-Klotz‘s critically-acclaimed directorial debut Mutt is, at once, precise and wholly relatable in its grand humanity. A visceral lead performance by Lio Mehiel embodies inbetweenness. The film earns its most difficult discussions through its tenderness towards each character’s struggle with the complexity of trans life, Latinx life in America, and of human life at large.
