The Hook Up

The Hook Up

| 6 min

The Hook Up is an experimental doc featuring four gay men from two different generations: two nearing age 70 and two 20-somethings. Striking close-up visuals create a powerful sense of intimacy and connection as the men discuss how hooking up has (and has not) evolved for gay men.

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.
