Short Films Spotlight: Dudes

In the new 11-minute short film Dudes, four buddies – Matt, Jay, Bobby and Denny, played respectively by Jakeem Hawkins, Anthon Meyer, Alexander Volpi and Michael Gmur – are sitting around playing video games. They’re also talking crassly about the girls in their orbit and relentlessly busting one another’s balls. Nothing unusual here. One could argue that this is the roundabout way that straight frat dudes display their affection. Soon, however, a line is crossed.

Once Denny starts trying to explain his lack of interest in a particular female hottie, the gay jokes ensue. “Do you hang out with your buds and plug each other’s assholes all day?” “Do you like to sit on the salami?” “Are you strictly dickly?” “Do you slide down the pole and take the sausage hostage?” Reaching a breaking point, Denny realizes it’s finally time to come out to his buds, whatever the consequences may be.

A Brazilian filmmaker who has studied at Vancouver Film School in Canada and at the  New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, Noan Ribeiro has worked extensively in post-production as a visual effects artist. He makes his directorial debut with Dudes.

Dudes is now available to stream on Dekkoo.
