Queer Blender

Moritz has moved to Berlin to his boyfriend Jonas and he believes in a carefree, loving couple’s life, without any serious plans for the future. He’s only 22, after all, and he has plenty of time for choosing a uni or a job. But the attractive photographer Jonas would rather enjoy the casual nature of the Berlin lifestyle and he soon breaks up with Moritz. Crushed and lost, Moritz succumbs to the nightlife, exploring new drugs, friends and sexual desires. In his feature debut, Hannes Hirsch examines the complete transformation of a person who is losing a foothold and is provided with unlimited freedom. The search for identity is related to the constant redefinition of the image of masculinity and the male gay body as such. Being very vulnerable and a nice boy deep inside, Moritz finds many temptations at every corner, and we can follow his struggle to become a mature human being without losing himself. Drifter premiered at Berlinale and was chosen to be a Closing Night Film at BFI Flare London.
