Futuro Beach is a tactile gay romance, told over three chapters and in the contrasting locations of sexy Brazil and frigid Berlin. When Brazilian lifeguard Donato fails to save a swimmer from drowning, he seeks out the victim’s friend, Konrad, a handsome German biker. The two men begin a passionate affair, and Donato soon decides to follow Konrad to Berlin. Years later, their seemingly peaceful life is threatened by a visitor from Donato’s past. Director Karim Aïnouz delivers a visually stunning, emotionally resonant tale about three men struggling across oceans of love, loss, and heartache.
