The Blonde One: Latin America Gala Screening
Prolific Argentinian director Marco Berger delivers his most assured film to date with this sexy, slow burn drama that firmly celebrates the gay male gaze.
In the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Gabriel has just moved in with his colleague, Juan. Shy and reserved, Gabo is reluctant to follow Juan’s wandering hands and meaningful looks. With a revolving door of beauties streaming out of Juan’s bedroom, his machismo seems firmly in place. However, the attraction between the two men is undeniable.
What starts out as a sexual relationship based on convenience of location, soon develops into the engrossing evolution of a tender and intimate relationship, which is as sweet as it is heartbreaking.
As reality begins to intrude on the couple’s homemaking fantasy, something has to give, or does it?
Join Us! The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Marco Berger and After Party in Gold Class. The Q&A will be Auslan Interpreted.
