Enjoy three unique short films from up-and-coming Spanish director Manu Roma

Manu Roma is an up-and-coming filmmaker from Barcelona who uses his work to tell personal queer stories. To give you a strong sense of his burgeoning talent, we have collected his first three short films, all made over the past three years.

First up is Bones, a 9-minute film about Victor, a 20-year-old with two immediate goals: to lose his virginity and, more dangerously, lose as much weight as possible before his 21st birthday.

Shot gorgeously in black and white, Roma’s next short, the 19-minute Anonymous, uses a first-person perspective to tell the stories of three men who go cruising for sex in different locations around Barcelona.

The final film, The Virgins, is a 13-minute slice of meta-fiction about the making of a short film. When the two stars of a new movie drop out at the last minute, the director and his boom operator find themselves taking over the lead roles and going to unexpected romantic lengths to tell their story.

A visionary filmmaker worth keeping your eye on, Dekkoo is proud to bring the work of Manu Roma to American audiences.

Bones, Anonymous and The Virgins are all available now on Dekkoo.

New Episodes of the Dekkoo Original Series Here Comes Your Man are Now Available!

A charming, funny, sexy and refreshingly realistic 5-episode Dekkoo Original Series from creator/director Omar Salas Zamora, Here Comes Your Man followed the relationship of two very different young men who tried to make love work, but hit many roadblocks along the way.

Now available, Season Two picks up post-break-up and follows our beloved leads Jordan (Calvin Picou) and Aaron (Jason Alan Clark) on their new separate adventures – along with some new and old friends who take center stage.

Aaron is navigating a new, but woefully causal relationship with cutie-pie Julio (Alessandro De Gennaro) – and trying to move it somewhere more serious. Jordan is elsewhere entirely. He’s settling into his new home in Omaha, Nebraska while looking to record his album. Meanwhile, Dustin (Matthew Namik) becomes entangled in an online romance while Cassie (Noelle Miller) reignites her romance with Malcolm (Clay von Carlowitz).

***SEASON 2 IS HERE!!***

The Dekkoo-original series ‘Here Comes Your Man’ follows Aaron living his own version of the 21st century gay experience. Along for the ride are his friends and lovers who are all exploring their own ambitions, relationships and dreams in modern day Los Angeles. Both seasons are available to stream now!

Fernando is a teenage boy living in the traditional countryside of São Paulo. With the insurmountable peer pressure to lose his virginity, he ends up engaging in a sexual encounter with an older man he met online. The hook up doesn’t go as expected. ‘Self’ is available to stream now on Dekkoo.

During Passover, Reuben, a French-Jewish man living in Finland with his Nordic boyfriend, finds himself back in Paris with his zany family after a lovers’ quarrel. ‘Let My People Go’ celebrates and upends Jewish and gay stereotypes with wit, gusto and style to spare. The result is deeply heartwarming, fabulously kitschy and hysterically funny.
