"Boy" showing in Cinemalaya tomorrow


Auraeus Solito's latest film entitled "Boy" will be screened in the Cinemalaya Cinco tomorrow, July 24, 6:15 PM at Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater) as one of the contenders in the Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema (NETPAC) Jury competition.

"Boy" has already been screened at the Torino GLBT Film Festival 2009 last April, at the 2009 Seattle International Film Festival held last month and in the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Film Festival just this month.

It's about a young poet who sold his collection of comic books and action figures so he could hire a male stripper / macho dancer on a New Years Eve.

It was also supposed to premiere at the 22nd Singapore International Film Festival but was banned by the censors in Singapore for this reason: "normalising" homosexuality and a "prolonged and explicit" homosexual scene which was filmed in a "romanticised manner."

Boy is played by Aeious Asin.

It also stars Noni Buencamino, Madeleine Nicolas, Aries Peña and Danton Remoto.

Auraeus Solito is the acclaimed director of "Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros", "Tuli" and "Pisay".
