Campfire back to product details

Gay Longing, Caught but Never Tamed

More artful than anything else, and certainly not the gay soft core some members might be hoping for, CAMPFIRE may disappoint viewers looking for cheap thrills. But these four short films by Belgian Bavo Defurne are so full of beauty, art and homosexual longing that they occupy a rather special place in the gay film canon.

The first and titular piece is the longest and offers the most "story," but the third (and other color film) "Matroos" is simply stunning. The two early, short black-and-whites make a nice intro to the work of this unusual filmmaker--whose repeated themes, quirks and obsessions make for quietly spectacular viewing
