Constant Craving

Whether in a post-apocalyptic sauna, a NYC subway car, a cruise-y back alley, a sweltering bedroom, a dream metropolis, or on the outskirts of Rio, humans long to connect, and some desires burn hotter than others. These adventurous and sensual queer shorts find their subjects—a futuristic wanderer, a biker dyke, a naked dreamer, a sultry saxophonist, and two couples in love—crossing cities, generations, even states of consciousness to chase their fantasies.

A Wild Patience Has Taken Me Here

A middle-aged biker is faced with an unexpected but desired encounter with a group of young queer women. When they come together, their universes do not collide but create a timeless identification shared by a common language.
