THE SUNDANCE KID

Queering Sundance: What’s Gay At This Year’s Sundance Film Festival?


“Tampa”

In this short film from director Kyle Henry, twenty-something Louis stops into the mall to grab lunch in the food court—and a quickie in the public restroom. He scouts for possible partners but lets imagination get the better of him: the bathroom’s clientele morph into fictional characters, historical figures and even world leaders. Louis is overwhelmed: Will his sexual savior ever materialize?

FYI: “Tampa” is part of Fourplay, a compilation of four sexual adventurous shorts co-produced by R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe. (Each is named after the town it takes place in.) See the NSFW trailer here.
