Filmmaker MARCO CALVANI talks about his debut feature film HIGH TIDE a queer love story in PTown

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , ,

 

Some 18 months ago Italian/American queer filmmaker Marco Calvani unexpectedly found himself staying in Provincetown for 6 months in the off season. This is the time of year when this gay mecca at the tip of Cape Cod, is completely empty of all the summer tourists and has a full time population of just 3000 souls. Its when Calvani fell in love …… with the town that is …. and the result is that he ended up writing/directing High Tide his debut feature film.

I’m not sure how Calvani pulled it off but for a small budget feature (shot in just 14 days) with some remarkable performances, with an exceptional one from the remarkably talented Marco Pigossi, (the actual real-life BF of Calvani) the real star is Provincetown.

Queerguru caught up with Calvani and actor James Bland when he was in Ptown for the film’s World Premiere to get  all the lowdown.  The interview was filmed by Dan Desjardins

‘Check It’ is a powerful and somewhat shocking new documentary about a ‘gang’ of gay and transgender kids in one of Washington DC’s most notoriously tough neighborhoods who collectively decide to fight back against all the physical and mental abuse that is heaped on them as they strive to simply survive. A couple of adult activists offer them a glimmer of hope for a better future.

queerguru got to talk to the filmmakers Dana Flor & Toby Oppenheimer when the movie played at the Provincetown International Film Festival #PIFF16 recently.

Filmed for P.T.V. by Heather Reed.
