Original language title: Los agitadores
Book Tix!

The line between the homoerotic and homophobic blur when a group of 20-something men spend a summer together, in the latest offering from prolific gay filmmaker Marco Berger.

Ten immature, supposedly-straight friends have a villa to themselves for Christmas and New Year. Fans of taking “homo photos” – snaps of their friends in nude or compromising positions – no one is safe from constant gay jibes. Amidst the throng of half-naked men is closeted Poli, equal parts turned on and put off by their shenanigans. But a poor grasp of boundaries and masculine bravado are a toxic mix, when tensions mount and mob mentality rules.

Content warning: contains depictions of homophobic violence and sexual assault

Sydney Premiere

“Argentinean director Marco Berger turns his queer eye on the straight guys in this darkly funny critique of homophobic machismo.”
