Mathieu, a young loner from Quebec exiled to Berlin, works at a public pool. There, he locks eyes – and bodies – with Matthias. Beyond the obvious sexual attraction, there is a metaphysical connection, a desire to merge with the other . . . and even to take his place. Drew Lint’s début feature is an unsettling and visually stunning queer thriller. Berlin-obsessed viewers will groove to the city’s irresistible pulse, elevated railway, immaculate art galleries, ruins and hypnotic minimalist techno, all serving as the backdrop to a new take on the figure of the doppelgänger.Q&A with Drew Lint on October 8Presented by MUTEK
