I Wish There Was a Guy Term for I Love You
All Films • Documentary, LGBT, 03-Oct-2022
In this collection of anonymous stories shared by queer men, a connection is drawn between queer life and nature. “I Wish There Was a Guy Term for I Love You,” directed by Andy Motz, is an experimental documentary narrated with tales of first time flings and intimate meet-ups framed as a series of evocative images of the wilderness. We hear their voices but don’t see them, a reflection of the secrecy and isolation imposed on their sexual identity fleeing from certain circles, religious and otherwise. It’s a poetic exploration of the significance of outdoor spaces in queer life, of safe encounter and liberation. -KA. Director & Editor: Andy Motz.
