The 16th Seattle GLBT Film Festival: Judas Kiss
A Film by J.T. Tepnapa-Charlie David,Richard Harmon,Brent Corrrigan,Timo Decamps,Julian Leblanc,Carlos Pedraza,Genevieve Buechner.
“If you had a second chance would you grab it?” is the question asked of Zachary Wells (Charlie David) a thirty-something man who is a never was and never will be film-maker whose life consists of parties and rehab. He had great potential in his college days but Hollywood mojo brought him no fame and misfortune and he now films wedding videos.
On his best friend's avouchment, he returns to his college to judge a film festival for short films made by students to choose the winner for a scholarship. The first night he meets a handsome young man and takes him back to his dorm room where Judas Kiss turns into an action film as the two men take it off and get in on with hot bodies on display as the both men make manly men love with one another.
He is shocked and surprised when he sees the same guy turn up for his interview for the short film “Judas Kiss” that he has made. The guy is Danny Reyes (Richard Harmon)and his background is absolutely the same as Zach. It turns out that Danny is no one but his own younger self and Zach is facing his past face to face. And it was Zach originally named Danny who made the film “Judas Kiss” and won the best film-maker award.
Could this be the magic? Has Zach time traveled back in time or have parallel dimensions somehow crisscrossed? The decisive question of them all, is Zach being given a “do over” of the boners he made preliminarily? As he comes to leverage with all of this, a chain-smoking mystery man kibitzing him:"Change the kids past,change your future."
Danny is very cocky and confident of winning the scholarship because the buzz is good and he has taken to drastic measures of his own in play along with his best friend and partner in film Abbey Park (Julia Morizawa). There’s a love triangle between Danny, Chris (Brent Wachowsky) and Shane (Timo Des camps) the other “do over” to choose the man he really loved and who loved him back. Instead of choosing Shane who’s filthy rich and uses new talent to his advantage.Continued on the next page
