Blue Boy © Manuel Abramovic
Congratulations! Manuel Abramovic, EMARE stipend 2016 @ Werkleitz, has won the German Short Film Award (Best Documentary) with Blue Boy.
Blue Boy portraits seven Romanian male-to-male sex workers in Berlin as they listen and react to recordings of their own experiences. By turning the process of exploitation into a spectacle, the camera becomes a client highlighting the inevitable performativity of such power relations.
