Follow the Protocol

Original language title: Seguindo Todos Os Protocolos
Book Tix!

It’s a question that’s all too familiar to many: what do you do when you’re horny and single during a global pandemic?

That dilemma is front of mind for poor health-conscious bear Francisco, who finds himself freshly dumped (via video call!) in the early days of COVID-19. In this wry film, we follow the nervous Francisco as he navigates the various possibilities of getting his end away without catching the virus. Equal parts funny, erotic and thoughtful, writer-director-star Fábio Leal takes precautions to the extreme with a fresh look at safe sex – and the sex that makes us feel safe.

“A fascinating look into how the pandemic failed to change people’s personalities as much as it exacerbated the pre-existing neurosis of everyone who’s lived through it.”
