REEL AFFIRMATIONS XTRA: Our Monthly Film Series
FEATURING THE TEDDY AWARD WINNER FOR "BEST FEATURE FILM" AT THE BERLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
CLICK BELOW TO VIEW THE TRAILER
Film Director Marco Berger explores the psychological ambiguities which develop between the reserved, 16 year old student, Martin, and his adult, high school swim coach, Sebastian. After a series of seemingly innocent circumstances, Sebastian offers Martin his sofa for the night. Throughout that night, young Martin reveals his calculating nature, as well as his normal boyish sexual curiosity.
Sebastian is enraged when he learns about this boy’s deceit and manipulation and lashes out. This violent outburst gives Martin ever more leverage. A suddenly grave accident should alter the balance of power...but perhaps not.
The subtle performances by both lead actors, an effective score and the use of restraint action produce an sober story of desire, power, rejection, shame and even affection.
This is only Berger’s second feature film and it was honored at the Berlin Film Festival’s with the Teddy, Berlineale’s GLBTQ prize.
