Desire Will Set You Free

Desire Will Set You Free

Dir. Yony Leyser

Synopsis:

Desire Will Set You Free takes you deep into the free-spirited, drug-fueled, queer-paradise of contemporary Berlin. Ezra, a struggling American writer, meets Sasha, a Russian immigrant escort, and he introduces him to his world of clubs and parties, a dizzying and vibrant hedonistic underground. As they journey together through Berlin's layered history and unique subcultural landscape, their relationship begins to take a new form and inner desires threaten to disrupt everything.
Desire features an über-large cast of famous cameos: Amber Benson (Tara on Buffy the Vampire Slayer), ‘Godmother of Punk’ Nina Hagen as Oracle, cult musician and performance artist Peaches, along with Rosa Von Praunheim, Rummelsnuff, Blood Orange, and Einstuerzende Neubauten and Blixa Bargeld (formerly of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds).
