Stranger by the Lake Dir. Alain Guiraudie (Staying Vertical)
Alain Guiraudie’s atmospheric thriller is set at a beautiful lakeside spot in southern France, frequented by men sunbathing in the summer heat and seeking out anonymous casual encounters in the nearby woods.
Handsome and naïve cruiser Franck comes across Michel, a striking masculine and moustachioed figure, whilst swimming. He becomes infatuated and must seduce him at any cost. His desire is tested when one night he bears witness to murder and, as a silent witness, must wrestle between his passion and his moral integrity.
Stranger by The Lake is an original work that marks a new landmark in cinema. A provocative and original effort, it is an erotic mix of the comic and the tragic, deservedly winning Alain Guiraudie the Best Director for Un Certain Regard at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
I Want Your Love Dir. Travis Mathews (Interior, Leather Bar)
The hotly anticipated debut feature film from director Travis Mathews (Interior, Leather Bar) is a bold and unflinching look at gay relationships among a group of San Francisco friends, which includes scenes of real sex, striking controversy amongst global film censors, including Australia where the film was banned in 2013.
After a decade of living in San Francisco, Jesse is forced to move back to his Midwestern roots because he can no longer afford the city. On his final night in the city, friends and ex-lovers gather for a going away party that promises to heighten Jesse’s already bittersweet feelings about leaving into sharper focus. Torn between his creative dreams and the reality of earning a living, he’s forced to take responsibility by redefining what it means to be an artist, a gay man, and an adult.
Featuring music from ‘The Chromatics’, I Want Your Love is a passionate and deeply intimate film, that dares to capture the uncensored zeitgeist of modern-day San Francisco unlike any film before it.
