Sexual Tension: Volatile (Surprise Screening)
Argentina, US, France  2012, 100 min

From Marco Berger the young director of Plan B and Ausente and Marcello Monaco comes this special Work-in-Progress Sneak Preview screening. Sometimes you don't always get the guy but you can always lust after him! Six short stories of gay men not always getting what they want. TLA will ask for audience feedback after the screening.

Have you ever met someone who made your body heat up, get a little nervous and sweaty, and made your crotch stir a bit? Sexual Tension will reignite those lustful feeling s as it weaves six scintillating experiences of men in various stages of nudity and many forms of erotic male bonding. A pulsating, sexually-charged thrill ride, Sexual Tension begins as a young man feels the adrenaline rush of his sexy tattooist’s needle in “Ari” while in “The Cousin,” a geeky, cute boy finds a hot Summer afternoon triggering his taboo desire for his Speedo-clad cousin. Two straight buddies literally show each other how to make love to a woman in “The Other One,” while a man with ‘Broken Arms’ receives a sensual sponge bath from a male nurse. ‘Love’ is questionable when a broken shower brings a married man and a hairy, innkeeper together when they least expect it and in “Workout” two muscular men, ‘sexting’ pictures to some hot chicks, begin to shed their clothes and inhibitions. Argentinian filmmakers Marco Berger and Marcelo Mónaco omnibus film, where sex links each story, offers voyeuristic pleasures as the camera penetrates and caresses the men’s bodies, but also turns a sharp eye to the mysterious, taboo and electrifying nature of male intimacy.
