Men For Sale
From award-winning director Rodrigue Jean comes this mesmerizing look into the lives of those who work the male sex trade industry on the streets on Montreal. Men for Sale is a frank and fascinating documentary that chronicles a year in the lives of 11 men - most of them in their early 20s - as they attempt to explain how they all arrived at the same profession.
With a humanistic eye the film uncovers the Vulnerabilities of its subjects as they struggle to affirm their masculinity and make sense of their conflicting sexual practices. Some of them envision themselves escaping the sex trade industry, while others feel like prisoners in a vicious cycle of drug use and prostitution. By artfully weaving together piercing confessionals and scenes of Montreal's nighttime cityscape, Jean creates a dreamlike vision of a rarely-glimpsed world - one that often goes unnoticed even when in plain sight.
