Boys For Sale (BQFF 2018)
March 18 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm UTC+10
“A punch between the eyes… storytelling you daren’t turn away from” – Raindance Film Festival
Boys are selling sex in Japan. Who is buying?
In the Tokyo district of Shinjuku 2-chome there are bars that specialise in “Urisen”, young guys who have sex with men. Featuring candid interviews and interspersed with animation detailing the awkward, sweet, and sometimes horrific situations these young sex workers experience, the boys for sale boldly tell their stories of life in the Tokyo underground.
This documentary is an illuminating look into a rarely seen world that tantalisingly shows the humanity of sex work.
