A lush, sexually explicit exploration of desire and fear, DRY WIND delivers bold colors, grand melodrama, a gorgeous soundtrack, and an unflinching look at gay intimacy. In a drought-stricken Brazilian town, Sandro keeps a low profile. He has unbridled sex with his friend, Ricardo, but only when hidden in the woods. His refusal to commit or leave the closet leads Ricardo's eye to stray, and it lands on the ridiculously hot Maicon, a mysterious motorcyclist played by Tom of Finland drawing come to life, Rafael Teóphilo. But Sandro's jealousy leads to betrayal, violence, and ultimately a reconsideration of living life in the shadows.


In a vivacious supporting performance, trans actress Renata Carvalho plays a union organizer and Sandro's friend, Paula. She tries to make Sandro see that the personal is political and that there's no glory in a life lived on the sidelines.


As he did in his playful, experimental documentary MR. LEATHER, director Daniel Nolasco stages lurid BDSM fantasies with a fresh eye and a sex-positive attitude. His first feature film, DRY WIND recalls the classics of Pedro Almodóvar and establishes Nolasco as a brash and promising queer filmmaker. It will leave you exhilarated, inspired, and at least a little turned on. - Frank Danay
