Inspired by crime thrillers of the 1970s, Adam in Fragments is a gritty and provocative new drama series which conjures filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch and Steven Soderbergh to tell the story of one hustler’s odyssey.
After a prolonged disappearance, Adam, played by Beau Swartz, reluctantly returns to sex work. Following the urge to protect a young aspiring adult film star from their terrorizing handler, Adam’s actions trigger a series of events that send violent ripples through the Los Angeles underground sex-trade.
Featuring strong supporting performances, Adam in Fragments is the newest series from Omar Sales Zamora. You can check out his other work, such as the series Here Comes Your Man and Nothing But Flowers, now as well. Both are streaming on Dekkoo. Adam in Fragments is also co-directed by Here Comes Your Man lead actor Calvin Picou.

In Shall I Compare You to a Summer’s Day?, a contemporary queer musical and pseudo-documentary from Egyptian director Mohammad Shawky Hassan, soft speaking voices and a dreamlike soundscape of Egyptian pop music combine to create an almost hallucinatory cinematic experience.
Based on a diary of the filmmaker’s personal love stories, and told in the form of tales from “One Thousand and One Nights,” Shall I Compare You to a Summer’s Day? gives us a glimpse into the sensual experiences of gay Egyptian men.
Telling their stories with humor, tenderness and wit, the power of prose commands attention and allows viewers to be completely swept up in Hassan’s unique vision.
With gorgeous colors, riveting stories, handsome actors and imaginative editing, Shall I Compare You To a Summer’s Day? is a truly unique gay fantasia.

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.
