Here’s a first look at the newly released poster art for Chris Mason Johnson‘s acclaimed gay coming-of-age dance-world drama, Test.
Co-starring modern dancer Scott Marlowe (the blond on the left and above) and veteran Broadway actor Matthew Risch (also seen most recently on HBO’s “Looking”), Test took home the Grand Jury Award for Outstanding U.S. Feature and Best Screenplay at L.A.’s Outfest last summer and is set for a U.S. theatrical release in June (with a simultaneous DVD and VOD release).
Like “Looking,” Test makes use of San Francisco as a backdrop — with a twist: it’s set in 1985 in the midst of the AIDS crisis at a modern dance company. The film also features a period soundtrack including tracks from Laurie Anderson, Bronski Beat, Cocteau Twins, Martha and the Muffins, Romeo Void and Sylvester.
