A portrait of one night’s intimacy between two men that just met. Their physical connection is immediate and they get carried away and have unsafe sex. Once the sexual tension has been released they’re having an intimate conversation, about gay men sexual roles, about preferences and self-image, about manhood.

As morning approaches, their moment is nearing its end and one’s need for reciprocity may question the other’s ability to love.

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.
