Worldly Affairs

This year’s edition of the best and sexiest international gay men’s shorts takes us on a tour of Latin America, the Middle East and Down Under. We’ll visit a drag show in Cuba, take a train ride in Europe, explore a park in the Middle East and finish our journey at a juvenile detention center in Australia.

Jonathan’s thirst for love brings him to the park for the first time in Your Warmth; but he just wants to be held. Will the park offer him that? In Alle Werden, Samuel meets Philippe, a handsome, highly admired colleague of his best friend Andreas. As the two get close, Andreas becomes irritated and put in the uncomfortable position to watch his best mate helplessly fall in love. Every weekend at an illegal drag show in a suburb of Havana, 17-year-old Sebastián transforms into Mila Caos, but Sebastián suffers from his mother's indifference and dreams that one day she will see him on stage. Sandro and Ivo study together in a high school in Brazil but have a troubled relationship in More or Less. When there is less than expected, there may be more than you think. A guy in the middle of the woods with a red phone can't get the thought of his boyfriend out of his mind in It’s Consuming Me. In The Wilding, Malcolm, a juvenile delinquent, is offered parole, yet he is torn between his chance for freedom and protecting the one he loves.
