Horny monsters, erotic dancers, lonely youths, mourning lovers and people who just wanna party. The short cinema of Yann Gonzalez is full of unique islands with exciting characters, gorgeous cinematography and sonic arenas.
Before he made the acclaimed queer giallo homage Knife+Heart, these short films would go on to win Yann a devoted cult following and awards at festivals. Working closely with the director, the cult video label Altered Innocence has compiled seven of his short works here as a main program (many newly restored in HD) and an appendix of music videos and other works.
Also included in this amazing new collector’s set is the English-language Blu-ray premiere of Gonzalez’s first feature film You and the Night. Featuring characters like The Stud, The Teen, The Slut and The Star as guests at a pansexual orgy, You and the Night is an erotic and wild take on The Breakfast Club with each character baring their inner souls to the group to find acceptance and love. An original score by M83 sets the dreamy and transcendent tone for the eternal night.
