lines between gay, straight,
and even bisexual...how image
and words play off one another
in FAUX simply astonishes.'
-John Townsend, Lavender Magazine
Caleb, a prolific writer, is involved in a hit-and-run accident, where he loses his wife and is left with a fading memory. He decides to take up life in a new city to aide his grieving, and in doing so, meets a filmmaker named Rin. The two inspire each other's work, and eventually their relationship blooms into something more. But that's when new details about Caleb's accident surface.
FAUX is four storylines, shot in four different film styles, intertwining to create a snapshot of the current human rights debate, and illuminate the best and worst of the human character. The film is about sex, cinema, and hope.
The film premiered in Minneapolis, presented by Twin Cities Pride 2010. It oversold.
