ABOUT THE TITLES
After its premiere at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize, Loggerheads won the Audience Award at the Nashville Film Festival and the Florida Film Festival, and took the top prize at Outfest, the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. Inspired by true events, Loggerheads tells three separate yet interwoven stories, set in North Carolina: a handsome HIV-positive drifter living on the beach; a woman desperately seeking the child she gave up for adoption; and a Christian couple faced with a faith defying dilemma. Stars Kip Pardue (ER).
A roller coaster comedy of love, politics and sex, spanning two young men's journeys of self-discovery and adventure from the radical '70s into the '80s. The film won the Audience Award at the Dallas Out Takes and the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival. Also nominated for the Best Feature Film at the Torino International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.
THAT MAN: PETER BERLIN
Imagine yourself in mid-seventies San Francisco, and you'll be able to conjure up images of the legendary Peter Berlin. Sex and style oozed from this man in skintight white pants, leather accoutrements and smooth, shoulder-length blonde hair. After just two remarkable 16mm porn films (That Boy and Nights in Black Leather) he vanished from the scene, but always remained an alluring and mysterious icon. Featuring interviews with '70s icons like filmmakers John Waters and Wakefield Poole, Jack Wrangler, author Armistead Maupin and Berlin himself, That Man: Peter Berlin is a lively, compelling and sexy documentary filled with juicy gossip.
All titles are available to view at £2.99. www.quod.tv
