From the director of “Mr. Leather” from TLVFest 2019 comes a sensational cinematic fantasy.
The area in the state of Guias in Brazil is monotonous, very monotonous. Sandro’s life is also monotonous. He works in a fertilizer factory, spends time in the public pool, and occasionally meets for sexual encounters with Ricardo, another worker from the factory.
When Maicon, a mysterious young man who seems to have just come out of an illustration of Tom of Finland, shows up in the small town and flirts with Ricardo, intense feelings of jealousy develop in Sandro. Sandro’s gray reality clashes with surrealistic fantasies woven into his mind, that combine motorcycles, leather clothing, BDSM and all under the influence of artificial neon lights.
Visually, this is one of the most spectacular films seen in 2020. “Dry Wind” is a particularly sexy cinematic work that the daring among you must see.
For ages 18 and up only due to explicit sex scenes.
