Directed by Carlos Ruano
In the outskirts of Madrid, Santi and Jota can usually be found drinking in the park, hitting the clubs, and talking about girls. When Jota is feeling off one day, Santi wants to know what’s up – but how will he feel when Jota finally shares his secret?
90 minsThese coming of age tales are all about coming out, changing relationships, and new beginnings. Jota shares a secret with his best friend Santi in SWIMMING POOL; and couples experiment with the idea of an open relationship in MONOGAMISH and SEEKING: JACK TRIPPER; a heart that can’t be tamed could mean love or humiliation for a closeted schoolboy in IN A HEARTBEAT; while newly single Jonah seeks out a relationship in SOMETHING NEW; PLEASE HOLD tells the story of a random hook up that leads to an HIV test and an unexpected friendship; the experimental animated documentary THE MEDIEVAL PEOPLE depicts the life of Chicago AIDS activist Lori Cannon; and BAYARD & ME recounts the relationship of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin and his younger boyfriend Walter. Whether their ventures are successful or end in disaster, the lives of these characters will never be the same.
