EAST COAST PREMIERE
It's the Christmas holidays, and sexy Andy leaves the city in order to spend some time at a luxury villa with all his handsome and hunky best friends. The timelessness of the holidays encourages rest, relaxation, and the occasional teasing. But their initial consensual horseplay reveals that they each have different personal boundaries. Ever since his debut film, Director Marco Berger has taken a continued interest in queer narratives and the depiction of erotic fantasies, sexuality, and gender, – and Horseplay is no exception. Once again, the Argentinian filmmaker presents a subversive political tale, this time focusing on masculinity in its dangerously toxic form.
