HOUSE OF BOYS
It is 1984. Frank is a determined teenager who runs away from high school to find an alternative lifestyle in Amsterdam. He finds a home and a job at the House of Boys, a bar-cum-brothel run by a strict Madame who has an eye for what his punters crave. Frank works his way up from barman to on-stage dancer and falls in love with some of his housemates. The first intimations of what is described as ‘the gay plague’, casts a long shadow over Frank’s tight-knit group of friends. Yet despite the troubles that cloud the hopes and dreams of young Frank, his perseverance, along with support from a willing doctor, will carry him through. House of Boys is a glamorous, colourful coming-of-age story that lifts the lid on an exciting world of sex and music, where deep passions suddenly turn into a struggle for courage.

The Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender
A hilarious and provocative romp through the hidden and not-so-hidden gay undercurrents of Hollywood’s Golden Years and, despite efforts to launder American cinema of even the faintest traces of gay influences, Hollywood’s squeamish fascination with gay eroticism and camp.
Through the use of ingenious film clips, along the director’s signature witty insights, The Silver Screen: Colour Me Lavender brilliantly uncovers the unmistakable homoerotic flirtations, and the ambiguous behaviour that richly imbued the performances of Danny Kaye, Jerry Lewis, Cary Grant, and other film legends.

Submarine
“I have been waiting too long for the film of my life. My name is Oliver Tate. This film will capture my particular idiosyncrasies, for example, the way I seduce my classmate Jordana Bevan using only my mind. Also, since my parents’ marriage is being threatened by a man who runs courses on Mental and Physical Wellbeing, the film will probably feature some elaborate set-pieces of me taking him down. There will be helicopter shots. There will be slow-mo, but also transcendent moments, like when I cure my father’s depression. Knowing me as I do, I will be surprised if this film runs to less than three hours. Note to the press: appropriate adjectives to describe this film include “breath-taking” and “irresistible” as well the phrase: “a monumental achievement”.” Oliver Tate
