YOSSI
YOSSI

In this sequel to Eytan Fox's international hit YOSSI AND JAGGER, Dr. Yossi Hoffman has become a valued and dedicated cardiologist, often using his work as a way to escape from dealing with his life. He lives alone, unable to break through the walls and defenses built around him since the death of his lover. His daily routine is shaken up by Tom, a handsome, self-confident, openly gay man, who represents a new world, different from the one that shaped Yossi.

DAY 8 IN REVIEW: ART FUSES WITH MUSIC
Cinematically and geographically, Outfest was all over the map Thursday night. In Hollywood, DGA 1 filled up for the Fusion Centerpiece screening of MOSQUITA Y MARI, with cast and crew joining audience members in enthusiastically receiving this L.A.-set Latina coming-of-age tale. The REDCAT downtown saw the World Premiere of THIS IS NOT A DREAM, a captivating examination of who's who in the video art scene and the international impact of their work, along with a new digital restoration of the landmark gay adult film L.A. PLAYS ITSELF, one of the few queer pornographic films to be included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. And that warbling your heard echoing through the canyons was the HAIRSPRAY SING-ALONG at the Ford Theater, where Outfest staff and board members donned wigs and joined the crowd in a rousing chorus of "Good Morning, Baltimore!"

FAMOUS JOE PROJECT
 
FAMOUS JOE PROJECT 
When Joe, a newly out gay man, moves to L.A., he embraces the city's fame-seeking vibe and begins filming his every moment - from the mundane to the sexy - and posting them on his website. But when he meets Jesus, a hustler, he's drawn into a strange world of sugar daddies, porn stars, and hangers-on - as the world watches. Director Eli Rarey delivers a raw and compelling look at a young man trying to balance on the edge of L.A.'s dark side.
