THE LONG AWAITED
NEW FILM OF THE
ICONIC QUEER DIRECTOR

Canada, 1972.

Dominic, 22 years-old, has a fetish… for himself. Nothing turns him on more than his reflection, with much of his time spent taking Polaroid selfies.

When his loving grandmother dies, he discovers a deep family secret: his lesbian mother didn’t die in childbirth and he has a twin brother, Daniel, raised in a remote monastery by a depraved priest, held captive against his will!

The power of destiny bring back together the two beautiful, identical brothers, who, after being reunited with their mother Beatrice, are soon embroiled in a strange web of sex, revenge and redemption.

FESTIVALS AND AWARDS

VENICE GIORNATE DEGLI AUTORI - CLOSING FILM

“The filmmaking isn’t only ravishing to look; the
writing and narrative construction have become a
little more sophisticated, too (...). A wild ride that’s
enjoyable in all its B-movie glory while also titillating
the intellect.”
