queerguru talks to openly gay actor-turned-director Brandon Cordeiro about his highly-personal heart-tugging short movie about a difficult passage in the history of the evolution of the LGBT community here in P.Town. Cordeiro born and bred in P Town took he title Ribbons from those that are hung blowing in the wind at the Town’s annual Swim For Life which is both a fundraiser and a celebration of the lives of the very many we lost to the AIDS pandemic.
Spa Night is a coming of age tale that is a really refreshing look at a young Korean/American man with a foot in two different cultures in which he doesn’t feel he fits, which in a way mirrors his parents own struggle to find their American identities. On top of that however, David has to come to terms with his own sexuality, which looks like it is going to take a great deal longer to resolve. Written & Directed by newbie filmmaker Andrew Ahn, it was one of the very best LGBT movies to emerge from Sundance this year.
queerguru reviews TICKLED a new documentary from David Farrier a New Zealand TV Journalist who thought he was just going to be doing a lighthearted film about was the quite innocent looking world of competitive endurance tickling.

This totally bizarre, and often very scary story makes for very compelling viewing.
