Crowdfunding campaign for “Boy Meets Boy” A Queer Feature Film
Considered the “the gay ‘Before Sunrise’ on MDMA in Berlin” by director Daniel Sánchez López, Cosmic Productions presents the Kickstarter campaign to produce: Boy Meets Boy, a feature length mumblecore about the journey of a brief encounter; the mark left by a fleeting moment of joy. The film is in the pre-production stage and the film company seeks to raise a total of 15.000 euros before the 3rd March 2019. It will be shot in July and August 2019 to be exhibited in international film festivals around the world the beginning in 2020.
Harry has been partying for 48 hours when he meets Johannes on the dance floor of a club in Berlin. With 15 hours until his flight home, Johannes offers to help him print his boarding pass. This mundane task leads to a day together wandering the city. The contrasts in their lives and values force both of them to confront their own truths.
This movie will be a “dramedy” of 75 minutes about the coming out of the second closet meaning the search for inclusion and identity within the gay community itself. As a gay filmmaker, the director has found that gay cinema is dominated by stories whose main conflicts are about either HIV/AIDS or heteronormative acceptance instead of a closer view inside the contemporary queer culture. Cosmic Productions believes this film is important to make because it will show the world the fears and fragilities of the millennial queer generation and empower us to be critical of the normative.
