After his mother dies, Sequan, a sensitive teenager from Brooklyn, moves in with relatives living in a small town plagued with secrets hidden deep within its lush, rural Alabama terrain. Confronting ignorance and danger, Sequan finds refuge in a friendship with a troubled girl who astutely hones in on his true sexuality and introduces him to her cute brother.
Rivers Wash Over Me is now playing.
In addition, do not miss filmmaker Blake Pruitt’s devastatingly candid short documentary 20MALEGAYNYC. We just added it to our library yesterday and it’s already garnering a lot of views.
Dazzling. Astonishing. Fascinating.
These are just a few of the words that have been used to describe director Ira Sachs classic gay film, The Delta. A compelling character study revolving around the confused relationship between a 17-year old Memphis student and a Vietnamese immigrant, it’s a fascinating tale of sexual and racial differences. It was a very controversial film upon its initial release but still holds up after 20 years.
The Delta is now playing on Dekkoo!

It looks like you’re going to be busy this weekend!
Emotionally moving and brimming with youthful energy, ‘The Bubble‘ is a snapshot of three Tel Aviv friends.
Their lives filled with trendy cafes, boutiques and the occasional sexual adventures, the trio seek refuge in their metropolitan “bubble”, isolating them from omnipresent fear of modern warfare around them. But when young Noam falls in love with a Palestinian young man named Ashraf, a chain of events is set in motion threatening their naive, idealistic existence.
Directed by Eytan Fox, The Bubble is as relevant today as it was upon its release 10 years ago. It’s a rich, textured gay romance that is an important link in the chain of great gay cinema.
Four diverse gay men navigate art, sex and love in one sublime night.
Directed by Joseph Graham (he directed Strapped, one of our favorite movies in the Dekkoo collection), Beautiful Something is a romantic comedy-drama that follows four diverse gay men over the course of one eventful night in Philadelphia. Each man is looking for a meaningful connection but usually settles for a quick and dirty hook-up. But in this stunningly photographed film, one extraordinary night will deliver a series of strange and life-changing encounters for each.
We are proud to offer this film the same week as its DVD release. As Dekkoo continues to grow, we will continue to bring our subscribers the very best in gay film. We’re thrilled to have you along for the ride!

‘Five Dances‘ is a coming-of-age tale about an extraordinarily talented young dancer (played by Broadway performer Ryan Steele in his first film role) who has recently arrived in New York City. It is a visually sensual glimpse of life and first love in the ‘downtown’ modern dance world. Shot mostly in and around a Soho dance studio, the film features original work by the internationally renowned choreographer Jonah Baeker. Writer-director Alan Brown and his cast of five of New York’s most gifted dancers capture the emotional turbulence and excitement of a small dance company during the process of creation.
