I Am Happiness on Earth
Julián Hernández, 2013
Mexico | Spanish with English subtitles | Format: Blu-ray | 115 minutes

New York Premiere

Julián Hernández, one of Mexico’s premier queer filmmakers (Raging Sun, Raging Sky), returns with this tale of a film director struggling with the line between his sexually charged reality and equally arousing cinematic creations. Will Emiliano be able to sustain his relationship, or will his lust for beauty and meaning lead him elsewhere? Furious couplings between gorgeous men include an exhilaratingly explicit play-within-a-play. Hernández’s boldly poetic romance compares with such films as Fellini’s , Godard’s Contempt, and others exploring the connections between love, sex, creativity, and filmmaking.
