A new trailer for the highly anticipated queer film Boy Meets Boy has been released ahead of the film’s world premiere at the BFI Flare: London LGBTQI + Film Festival this month. Directed by Daniel Sánchez López, we embark on a love story that sparkles between two guys on a dance floor and turns into a day of adventure on the streets of Berlin.
“The contrasts in their lives and their values force everyone to confront their own truths. Boy Meets Boy is a mumblecore feature film about the journey of a brief encounter: the mark left by a moment of fleeting joy, ”says the official synopsis.
After 48 hours of endless partying in Berlin, Harry shares a kiss with Johannes on the dance floor on his last day in Berlin. After striking up the conversation, Johannes offers to help Harry print his boarding pass before taking off for the UK and this mundane task leads to a day of wandering the streets of Berlin together. Time is running out and they understand the true meaning of this brief meeting. Performed by Matthew James Morrison and Alexandros Koutsoulis, we are taken on a heartwarming journey with unexpected turns, intimacy and a power of attraction born from the dance floors of Berlin.
With his panoramic photos of our beloved city, Boy Meets Boy takes us back to pre-pandemic Berlin, where going to a club brought a night full of enjoyable encounters, exciting twists and turns, and spontaneity. It’s a refreshing reminder of all the times we took for granted when life felt normal and how much they meant now. The film is available from March 17 to 28. You can book your ticket to view it online on the BFI Flare official website.
