The New Waves


Camille Vidal-Naquet | France| 2018 | 97 min.
O.V. French subtitle in Spanish and English

Leo, 22, address unknown, sells his body on the street. But his progress through life isn’t one of sordidness and clichés, but rather that of someone beyond all laws and ties. In his constant search for human warmth, he lives between an impossible love (for another rent boy) and the universal love that he is capable of finding in unlikely situations and people. But his savage condition isn’t free from risks.
