Short Film: La Ráfaga (THE GUST), 30min., Puerto Rico, Drama

LGBTQ+ Toronto Film Festival


C0603df875 posterWeeks after Hurricane María devastated Puerto Rico, a lonely middle-aged man finds himself obsessing with his neighbor, a young closeted and tormented athlete who insistently pursues his attention. The movie deals with fragility issues of living in a forgotten paradise, in the world’s oldest colony, still half-torn, half-supported, with half-citizens, half-gods, and half-demons.

Semanas después del paso del huracán María por Puerto Rico, un hombre mayor que vive en soledad se obsesiona con su joven vecino, un atormentado atleta en el “closet” que lo busca con insistencia. La película revela temas sobre la fragilidad de sobrevivir en una isla semi-destrozada, con apoyo a medias a sus semi-ciudadanos, que habitan en lo que aun es la colonia más antigua y que una vez fuera el paraíso.
