This German short Cold Star defies description. The director says:
A boy experiences new desires while watching a man at an indoor swimming pool. Forced up the diving platform by a rowdy gang, he receives unexpected help.
Cold Star is a mixture of short and music video. A hybrid, that connects the emotions of a short with beats and lyrics of music. The film is an appeal for acceptance of your own and others sexual identity.
The reality is a soup of sexuality that seems like the perfect way to spend a day at the pool. I have to wonder if this is what Barry Harris and Pepper Mashay had in mind back in my club days.
