Back Room

Country: Spain, Language: Spanish, 14 mins

  • Director: Guillem Morales
  • Writer: Francesc Hernández

CGiii Comment

Brave and truthful.

The horrors of the backroom - the hatred, the violence, the desperation, the irresponsibility - all exposed.

This is not complimentary to the lifestyle - it is stark, bleak and dark.

Writer and director both pull it off with an incredible sadness - and, a frightening feeling for the lonely.

Intense work.

In the back room of a gay club in Barcelona, the camera stalks the men (privy to their inner thoughts in voice overs), who stalk each other on a typically busy Saturday night.
