What probably helped the Kickstarter was the success of Chaser, which has been doing the rounds of LGBT film festivals to much acclaim. Indeed it’s been such a success that the 15-minute movie is getting a relatively rare for a short film DVD and VoD release in the US on August 8th.
However to see whether this is something you reckon is worth investing in, Sal Bardo has currently put the entire short of Youtube, which we’ve embedded right here (don’t be surprise if it’s taken down before the actual DVD release, so we’ve included the trailer too).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Alienated from his conservative Jewish family and community, a young gay schoolteacher seeks solace in New York’s barebacking scene. Challenging and controversial, Chaser is a stunning 15-minute short that created quite a lot of buzz at film festivals all over the world.’
It’s intriguing, sexy, erotic and beautifully made – and personally I can’t quite get over how gorgeous the film’s star, Max Rhyser, is.
Take a look at the short and its trailer below.
