Australia. 2020. 80 '. Fiction. VOSTF. Forbidden - 16 years old.
Director: Samuel Van Grinsven
With: Conor Leach, Simon Croker, Jeremy Lindsay Taylor.

Attracted by anonymous sex on the app, Sequin seeks to connect with older people. On a memorable evening, he meets a mysterious and fascinating man to whom he feels an irrepressible attraction. From then on, he will make everything find this stranger, even if he has to rely on a threatening former lover to help him.

Inspired by the new queer cinema of the 90s, this erotic thriller brought to the digital age is one of the most exciting experiences of this edition. With rare visual talent and infectious energy, the Australian director explores how social media simultaneously connects and alienates us. It brilliantly portrays the precarious excitement of “app sex”, the ever-renewed search for thrills and the sometimes tormented psychology of its users. An intense, disturbing and disturbed film - but above all very real.
