"An Instant", short film from Spain (2017) about a spontaneous bond between two very contrasting gay men

Casas Colgadas de Cuenca


An Instant” (Un instante, Spain, 2017, 19 min, directed by Adria Guxens).

A scholarly boy Hugo(Andrian Sanchez-Campo), riding the train and once in a while trying things, meets rock singer  Cosmo (Marc Joy) in a bar.  Cosmo is much more daring, with tattoos and nose rings and chain smoking.

Whatever superficial disapproval, Hugo becomes attached to him, until he takes leave again, in a series of platonic encounters.

This short was in many festivals.
