You may remember our good friends Nature Show (Andrew Lush and Jane Pickett) from the gorgeous L.A. Zine Fest promo video they made back in February. It seems that while making our video, they were also totally immersed in working on The Men’s Room, a short film that will be debuting at the Atlanta Film Festival on March 25. (If you’re in Atlanta, the premiere’s at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema at 4PM. Buy your tickets at the festival’s website.)
The Men’s Room is an emotionally charged short film dealing with explicit themes of male sexuality, intimacy, and the concept of public decency. When Thomas ventures into a park for a sexual encounter with a stranger, he uncovers a striking complexity composed of desire, fear, and betrayal when his would-be anonymous sex partner turns out to be a cop. The Men’s Room explores the seemingly unwelcome yet enduring pastime of public sex, a world of secrecy and code lurking just below the surface of normalcy.
We’re so happy for their success and we hope to see this film a little closer to home soon!
