So there are all these photographers and painters and various artists out there creating photos and paintings and, uh, various artworks involving homoerotics. And filmmaker Matt Riddlehoover has put them all together in the documentary Gaze. And we’re sort of excited about it!
Normally when you ask us to sit through a feature length film devoted to “beauty,” we’d decline the invitation. We don’t need another sociology lesson. But with some 20 artists on board — including Rob Beyond and Adam Bouska, Bruce LaBruce, Austin Young, and Jules Julien — to tell Riddlehoover about the influences driving their works of queer art, we’re jumping on board.
Gaze will make the gay movie festival circuit next year, Riddlehoover tells us. See ya then.
