It may only be a minute long, but it’s enough time to make Fulboy look pretty sexy – and that’s without any actual sex, kissing or overtly erotic – just men playing football and getting changed (although you can play spot the testicle).
Fans of Marco Berger (Hawaii, Absent, Plan B) might not be surprised to hear he’s one of the film’s producers, as it has a similar aesthetic to some of his work.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘On the verge of achieving his dream career, Tomás allows his older brother Martín Farina an inside look at his life as a professional football player. Martín, never able to fulfill his own dream of playing football, steps into the world of Tomás and his teammates through the lens of his camera. However, the rest of the club has their own opinions – some viewing Martín as an intruder, as he exposes their most vulnerable moments, and their concerns for the future after the game has ended.
‘Fulboy offers an uncensored, confessional look at how the athletes behind the most popular sport in the world behave during their time off the field. At the same time, Fulboy reflexively interrogates Farina’s aesthetic choices and point-of-view – as well as the viewer’s gaze at the male form.’
TLA Releasing will release Fulboy later this year.
