Spotlight: The Schoolmaster Games

Director: Ylva Forner Run Time: 82 min. Release Year: 2022 Language: Swedish

At St Sebastian, a university where everyone are gay men and everything pulsates of eroticism and power games, the strict Schoolmaster works. His secret BDSM-affair with his student Charles comes to an abrupt end when a mysterious carving on his door brings back a traumatic memory from his past. Simultaneously the auditions for the annual Winter Procession engulfs the boy quartet; Tim, Fred, Paul and Noak, and the process challenges their internal hierarchy and threatens their friendship and unity.

We are honored to be hosting the US premiere of Ylva Forner’s naughty utopian comedy The Schoolmaster’s Games

This event is proud to be co-presented by: Boston Underground Film Festival
