Intimacy Workshop @ Nashville Film Festival

A short film that takes place in a dark church basement. There is a group of men and a single woman. It soon becomes apparent that they are there to do some group work on human connection. She is leading the men through exercises on how to make that connection. A connection that men have been trained not to seek. Retraining them about how they could express what they need. That it is not a bad thing.

For most of film history the homosexual male has been the object of the camera. His life and behaviour. This film, directed by Eddie Prunoske – a gay male, turns that on its head by having a gay male director put up for our observation the behaviour of the heterosexual male. Clever that. And we don’t even really notice it is happening.
