Conjuring Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch and Steven Soderbergh all at once, the trailer for the brand-new Dekkoo-Original Adam in Fragments delivers a small taste of the transgressive sights and sounds to come.
Inspired by crime thrillers of the ’70s, this provocative, gritty drama tells the story of one hustler’s odyssey.
After a prolonged disappearance, Adam (Beau Swartz) reluctantly returns to sex work. Following the urge to protect a young aspiring adult film star, Lucy (Keiva Bradley), from their terrorizing handler, Felix (Francisco Antonio), Adam’s actions trigger a series of events that send violent ripples through the Los Angeles underground sex-trade.
“Adam is a career sex worker,” said the directors. “It was interesting to us to look at Adam as someone who doesn’t view himself as a victim of circumstance, and instead takes pride in a skill he’s mastered. His drug use muddies thing for him, but it was important to us that his story should be one where the sex worker doesn’t necessarily want out because he genuinely doesn’t care. His careful anonymity to keep his professional lifestyle livable until the end was a big draw. His noble aspirations to be in control of his life and accountable for his decisions makes him unaware that he’s on a suicide mission.”
The filmmakers hope that audiences “find the humanity in difficult characters. It wasn’t interesting to try to make them heroes, villains or victims – they just needed to exist.”
If you could go back in time and change one of your life’s biggest regrets, would you? Could you? More importantly, should you?
The binge-worthy new series Trending Yesterday explores that very question. This independently-produced show follows a close-knit group of gay men who have all been friends since the late 1980s. Though they came of age during a more turbulent time, the group built a strong sense of community and survived society’s ups-and-downs together.
The series begins in the present day, but takes an unexpected turn when, after a celebratory night, Eric, the show’s narrator, wakes up to discover that he has somehow been transported back to 1988. He then sets out on a mission to change the things he wasn’t able to the first time around.
Employing a dual timeline, this clever, critically-acclaimed series examines the many strides we have made over the past three decades as well as the challenges that still exist within the LGBTQ community.
The series, created by Sullivan Le Postec, centers around the abundant, colorful world and everyday lives of several engaging and passionate activists who run an LGBTQ+ center in France.
In this brand-new season, Thibaut saves a Chechen refugee from a nearly fatal trap, and in the process discovers a trial program for human rights protection which has provided shelter for numerous people in Europe. Meanwhile, Hicham returns to his tower-block neighborhood in Saint Étienne after a relative is killed in a fight with the police.
Both men are in a race against time. Thibaut has to discover the mole inside the European institutions in order to save the lives of those protected by the human rights program, while Hicham has to reveal the truth about his cousin’s death and fight a media cover-up which threatens the case.
Series stars Mehdi Meskar and Eric Pucheu return to their roles in what is easily the show’s grittiest and most intense season yet. If you haven’t caught up with all the action, fear not. The first two seasons of Woke are also available now on Dekkoo.
