An anonymous sex party opens up a whole new world for Sequin, in this stunning story of obsession and an essential coming-of-age tale for today

Favouring instant gratification over meaningful relationships, 16-year-old Sequin is part of the always logged-on but never engaged generation, ghosting ex-partners and remaining emotionally unavailable. That is until he finds his way to an anonymous sex party, where a new and dizzyingly alluring world unfolds before him. A chance encounter with a stranger sets him on an exhilarating and often perilous mission to track down this mystery man. With unflinching honesty, stylish visuals and a superb performance from its lead actor, Sequin in a Blue Room is stunning story of obsession and an essential coming-of-age tale for today. 

“Sequin in a Blue Room is very much of the moment, but upholstered by an impressive command of good old-fashioned craft.” Hollywood Reporter 

Plus a screening of short film Deep Clean, dir: David Wilson, UK, 4 min.
