What if Sex in the City was taken from a male point of view … a gay male point of view? You would have Modest Male Exposure. A new short film from Jed Ryan and Clover Welsh.
Shamrock Moon Media and Lavender After Dark Films take us to nudist colonies and locker rooms to discuss the male form and how the 21st century might be altering our perception of it. Done in vignettes with over-the-top (or bottom, in some cases) humor, A reporter talks to athletes and nude bathers about what men think of their bodies. Lots of, um, “accidental nudity” pervades this lampoon of commercial investigative journalism and pure satire of male social mores.
Short film Modest Male Exposure, which examines male nudity in the media, gets a screening at popular Bear spot, Rockbar NYC.
Modest Male Exposure is a comedic take on the changing attitudes towards male modesty and nudity. The film will be presented at a free screening at popular New York City Bear hangout Rockbar on Thursday, January 22nd.
In the film, TV reporter Sam Derrick wonders about male modesty and exposure in public places. He also wonders about gender-segregated bathroom facilities, while blogging about some of his recent news segments. From a live post-game locker room interview that accidentally broadcasts naked baseball players, to a segment about a nudist resort where no one is shy; From male high school students who won’t use showers after gym class or open urinals, to concerns about openly LGBTQ people and women in the facilities… The question is: Will hitting the showers with his rugby buddies after games ever be the same?
