OUT on DVD/VOD: Utopians

Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired North American rights to the LGBT/Drama Romance UTOPIANS (aka Tung lau hap woo), the newest feature film from Hong Kong LGBT auteur SCUD (Amphetamine, City Without Baseball).
 

UTOPIANS held its world premiere at the New Director’s Film Festival in Japan. The film later held its US Premiere at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, and went on to play at Outfest FUSION and the Chicago International Film Festival.

Richard Wolff, CEO of Breaking Glass, and Amanda Rae Simon, Esq. negotiated the deal with writer/director SCUD and Nicky Ma of Artwalker Limited located in Hong Kong.

“My last four consecutive films were in the Chicago International Film Festival, and a friend once told me he saw one of my films looped on TV the whole night in a famous club in New York”, said writer/director SCUD. “If I could see my work on the street as well, watched by the people I adore and admire, it would be a dream come true.”

“We have long been admirers of the beautiful films from SCUD”, said Richard Ross, Co-President of Breaking Glass. “Utopians is sleek, sexual, literate and an immensely engaging work of art.”

Breaking Glass is planning a premium VOD and DVD release in early May.

OUT on DVD/VOD: Akron

Akron from Wolfe Video on Vimeo.

AKRON offers a gay coming-of-age tale with a refreshing twist-none of its characters are in search of self- or familial acceptance, because they've all already achieved it. Set against the backdrop of midwest Ohio suburbia, where familial cohesion and domestic stability are cultural commodities, the film instead explores the damage that can be done by other kinds of buried secrets, and the resilience and forgiveness it takes to heal that damage.

A sensitive and nuanced film that puts a progressive, Midwestern spin on a classic family drama: Benny and Christopher, college freshmen, meet playing football and begin a relationship. They fall in love supported by their family and friends. As their love for each other grows, a past tragic connection involving their mothers comes to light, and this revelation tests their own love and Benny's close-knit family.

OUT on VOD (and in Select Theaters): Kiki

 

25 years after Paris Is Burning introduced the art of voguing to the world, Kiki revisits New York City's thriving underground ballroom scene. It's a larger-than-life world in which LGBTQ youths of color are empowered by staging elaborate dance competitions that showcase their dynamic choreography, fabulous costumes, and fierce attitude. It's also a safe haven for struggling, at-risk teens who find acceptance, support, and friendship within the Kiki community. Granted intimate access to the scene, filmmaker Sara Jordenö introduces viewers to some of Kiki culture's most prominent personalities, going beyond the glamour of the balls to highlight the serious challenges facing queer black and Latino young people. Bringing together heartrending personal stories with incredible displays of creative expression, Kiki is "exhilarating...an indelible, must-see ode to gay New York" (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times).

Written and directed by Sara Jordenö and co-written by Twiggy Pucci Garcon, Sundance Selects will release Kiki in select theaters and on VOD on February 24th.

OUT on DVD/VOD: 50 Years With Peter, Paul and Mary

 

50 Years With Peter, Paul and Mary is a new documentary by four-time Emmy Award-winning producer/ director Jim Brown that focuses on portions of the trio's career not included in previously aired PBS specials. This program features rare and previously unseen television footage including a BBC program from the early 1960s that embodies many of the trio's best performances and most popular songs. This is Peter Paul and Mary at the peak of their artistry, a time when this popular and influential trio dominated the Billboard music charts.

From the group's emergence in Greenwich Village, to the Civil Rights and Anti-War era of the 1960s, through the decades of their later advocacy and music, to Mary Travers' moving memorial, and finally to the present, where their legacy continues to inform and inspire successive generations, this far deeper and more intimate exploration of the trio reveals the impact of their artistry and activism on their generation and the world.

50 Years With Peter Paul and Mary will be available on DVD and select video on-demand platforms on December 9th.

OUT on DVD/VOD: Esteros

In Esteros, Matías and Jerónimo—played by Ignacio Rogers and Estaban Masturini, who have a potent on-screen chemistry—have known each other since childhood. During the holidays in the Argentine wetlands of Esteros and before they begin high school, their friendship takes a new turn when they both experience their sexual awakening. However, Matías’ father forces them apart when he takes a job far away. Ultimately, distance and family contempt for homosexuality leads Matías to deny his friend, and ultimately, himself.

More than ten years later, Matías returns to his old town for Carnival with his girlfriend, where he unexpectedly runs into Jerónimo. Feelings between the two men slowly reappear, leading to a long-repressed awakening. But at what cost? Esteros is an expansion and reworking of the director’s 2015 short film Matías y Jerónimo in which two young boys are witness to a hate crime. Curotto’s debut feature is a charming and heartfelt take on second chances at love.


Esteros opens at the Arena Cinema in Los Angeles on Friday, November 18, followed by a VOD release on Tuesday, November 29, where it will be available on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu and On Demand through local cable and satellite providers.

OUT on DVD/VOD: Shared Rooms

A sexy, exuberant gay romantic comedy, SHARED ROOMS, will release November 15th on DVD / VOD via Wolfe Video.

This new romantic comedy brings together three interrelated tales of gay men seeking family, love and sex during the holiday season.

Married couple Laslo and Cal unexpectedly take in a gay teen relative who's been kicked out of his home; Sid and Gray have a casual online hookup which unexpectedly deepens; and roommates Julian and Dylan confront their secret mutual attraction when forced to share a bed for a week. At a New Year's Eve party, these stories come together in a heartwarming and joyous ending.

Accomplished filmmakers Rob Williams and his partner Rodney Johnson (makers of the gay holiday hit Make The Yuletide Gay) have created a crowd pleasing gay holiday comedy, starring a sexy ensemble cast, and set in the hip Los Angeles enclave of Silverlake. This is their eighth feature film.

Said Williams, "I believe in the power of film, and especially, the power of gay films. We can show people who don't get to be out and open in their daily lives that it's possible to find true love, that it's possible to find an accepting family, and that it's possible to be gay and be happy. I hope that in creating a world where men find love and family - even if it's just a movie - we can inspire people to look for the positive things in life and to welcome love in whatever form it comes."
