Gabe Talks ‘Lost Coast’

Gabe Talks 'Lost Coast'

Filmmaker Gabriel Fleming’s sophomore feature is the acclaimed and award-winning The Lost Coast, a dark and tender look at a small group of friends and the tensions that bind them. We just put the film on Amazon VOD, and to honor that, Gabe checked in with indieWIRE:

iW: Please discuss how the idea for ‘The Lost Coast’ came about.

Fleming: A lot of my gay male friends have this common story, about a sexual relationship they had in high school with a guy who, to this day, identifies as straight. It’s a ubiquitous, yet silent side of male sexuality. Being bisexual myself, I feel a kinship with these ostensibly straight guys, and I also find the internal struggle that they must have gone through to be fascinating. It seemed like a good subject to make into a quiet, dark, atmospheric film, which is what I was interested in at the time. I was listening to a lot of shoegaze music, and I wanted to capture the dreamy, unsettling tone of that genre.
