SELECTED FOR SUNDANCE & BERLIN 2011

Spring is about a young man, Joe, seeking to discover his sexual boundaries with a stranger. Joe is seeking an immediate sexual thrill, while Tim wants something more psychological. Two very different needs, but sought within the same space. Rightly or wrongly, Joe decides to venture down an unconventional path where he finds moments in equal measure that repel and excite him profoundly. The film shows how we can let ourselves be used and what we are capable of inflicting on others. The encounter is full of little ritualistic intimacies that will shape Joe’s life – and his life will never be the same again.
