Barrio Boy

September 26, 2018

BBIt’s a hot and sweaty summer afternoon in a macho Brooklyn hood and while cutting the hair of a handsome Irish stranger, a Latino barber secretly falls in love.

-Miami LGBT Film Fest – Audience award for Best Short

It’s tightly paced and executed, counting on stylish editing and a charming performance from his protagonist, a Latino barber in Brooklyn. On a hot summer day, an Irish stranger comes in for a haircut and the barber instantly falls in love with his customer as we learn from hearing his thoughts in voiceover. Sounding off his romantic declaration with poetic gusto, it’s endearing, cute and funny to listen to this lovely man’s inner feelings whilst on the outside he just acts professionally. Who hasn’t fantasized about a dreamy stranger and could do nothing about it?

You can watch it here.
