2015 San Diego Latino Film Festival

Cine Gay Showcase

CineGay

LGBTQ cinema is transcendent by nature, oftentimes forcing spectators to look beyond their own experiences and inviting them to engage, reconcile, and ultimately relate to issues initially outside of their understanding. It is our pleasure to continue our annual tradition of bringing you the very best of LGBTQ Latino cinema.

  4. Cuatro Lunas

    Sergio Tovar Velarde / Cine Gay Showcase / Mexico / 2014 / Thriller / 110 mins
    A mosaic of four stories about love, acceptance, heartbreak, and regret. After a fleeting bedroom romp, Mauricio, a shy 11-year old, must deal with repercussions and a strained relationship with his parents. Two childhood best friends, Fito and Leo, reconnect as young adults and forge a passionate but secret relationship. Leo’s refusal to go public with their union forces Fito to find companionship elsewhere. Heartbroken, Leo must come to terms with his own sexuality in hopes of winning Fito’s affection again. After a decade together, Hugo and Andres’ relationship hit a rough patch; and when an indiscretion is revealed, they decide on a two-week trial period to see if they truly belong together. Joaqúin, an uncelebrated poet and family man, has lived an entire life without giving into his one desire: to have a sexual experience with another man. He contracts a male prostitute and the two forge an unlikely, complex relationship that alters their lives forever.

  6. Futuro Beach

    Karim Ainouz / Cine Gay Showcase / Brazil / 2014 / Drama, Romance / 106 mins
    Part gay romance, part inquisitive self-journey, Futuro Beach is a stunning examination of lives lost and found. Donato works as a lifeguard at the spectacular but treacherous Praia do Futuro beach in Brazil; Konrad is an ex-military thrill-seeker from Germany vacationing with a friend. After Donato saves Konrad from drowning, but fails to save his other friend, initial sexual sparks give way to a deeper, emotional connection. Donato decides to leave everything behind, including his ailing mother and younger brother, Ayrton, to travel back to Berlin with Konrad. There, he finds both confusion and liberation, and his journey for love soon turns into a deeper search for his own identity.

    Liz has known several things since childhood: that she is gay, that beauty is power, and that she would never be a victim. Determined to enjoy the time she has left on earth, she hides her terminal disease from friends. Eva lost her son to cancer; and that pain and guilt have tarnished the relationship with her husband. Against all odds, these two opposite women encounter one another; it changes their lives, and begins new standards where love, life, and death away from morals, play as simple steps of nature.
