One of Dekkoo‘s programming goals is to educate as well as entertain and the focus of this week’s dispatch is a shining example of this. They are very proud to present ‘Parting Glances‘, a landmark film and a true masterpiece of 80’s queer cinema. At a time when many gay films were still tepidly feeling their way through the homophobia of mainstream America, Bill Sherwood decided to make a film where coming out wasn’t a main plot point and tragedy didn’t linger over every frame of the film. It’s an out-and-proud film about gay men living their lives in NYC still feeling out the reality of the AIDS epidemic but living above and through it.

17 year old Arend lives with his parents and has yet to come out of the closet. His first step is a date with handsome Michael, a guy he met on a dating site. When they meet, Arend discovers that Michael is not quite what he imagined. ‘Short’ is now available on Dekkoo!
Love Me Anyway
‘Love Me Anyway’ is a sun soaked drama about a filmmaker in love with a surfer, and a young wife exploring the greener grass of an extramarital affair with another woman.
Dusk is still an hour or so away. You’re in a forest in the Northeastern area of Spain where various men and women are cruising for love and sex, but mostly sex. An older stud, Carlos, prowls the forest looking for his next trick, but instead happens upon one of his students, Toni. He doesn’t want to lose his job, but he also appears to have a voracious appetite for sexual pleasures and decides to have sex with Toni in his car (an incredible 4-minute sex scene taken in one continuous zoom shot). I don’t really want to say what happens next, but I will say that I won’t mess with a group of Spanish youth ever!
