Lalo – a quietly handsome welder – starts acting in porn. On the set of a film about a gay Mexican revolutionary and his lovers, he first experiences a sense of solidarity with his openly gay peers, while also sensing the porn industry’s mechanical emptiness. Both of these aspects hit him hardest when he moves into social media.

A multi-faceted film where fiction meets reality, exploring melancholy as well as very different levels of intimacy, while also levelling a critique of traditional machismo culture. IMDb trailer
