Yann Gonzalez

“I have always been moved by the truth that emanates from films through artifice. Cinema is first and foremost artificial, that needs to be accepted, we shouldn't go through a picture of reality. Playing with artifice is a good way to avoid bias, to be frank with the viewer. They have the right to follow you or not, but knowing where they stand.”

    HIDEOUS

    Yann Gonzalez United Kingdom, 2022

An opulent, unapologetic reckoning with HIV stigma, starring queer icons Jimmy Somerville and Bimini.

    LAND OF MY DREAMS

    Yann Gonzalez Portugal, 2012

    Once we discovered French director Yann Gonzalez’s debut, You and the Night, we had to see more. So we’ve tracked down the short he made just before his first feature—and, unsurprisingly, it is pure kink featuring a mother-daughter stripping act. Hyper-stylized, campy and sexy, the film simply pops!
