At the Filmoteca de Catalunya

On the occasion of the 25 years of the Mostra FIRE!!, we start a new retrospective section in collaboration with the Filmoteca de Catalunya, which will take place from now on every year around the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

For this first edition, it will be around the French directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau, emblematic figures of world LGBT cinema, with the following three titles: Jeanne and the Perfect Guy, The Adventures of Felix, and Paris 05:59: Théo & Hugo.

The retrospective will begin with the presence of Olivier Ducastel, on May 18 and 19

Jeanne, a pretty young woman with lots of boyfriends, always seems to be in a hurry. One day, she meets Olivier, a young man with HIV, who becomes her true love, the person she has always been looking for. When Olivier finds out that he has little time to live, he disappears, leaving Jeanne alone and distraught, desperately searching for any hint of him. Time passes and Jeanne finds out that Olivier has died. But she decides that life must go on.

Félix is a young Frenchman, of Algerian origin, homosexual and suffering from AIDS who lives in Normandy with his boyfriend, Daniel. His mother has recently died and when reviewing some of her papers, he finds some letters written by his father, whom he could not meet because they separated before his birth. He decides to make a trip to Marseille to meet his father; he buys a star in the colors of the rainbow because it reminds him of the gay flag and hitchhikes off back roads. Along the way, Félix will meet a group of people with whom he will get to connect…
