The meta-documentary, "Interior. Leather Bar.," a riff on the missing forty minutes of William Friedkin's cult film "Cruising," was recently announced as a selection in the Sundance New Frontiers program as well as the Berlinale's Panorama section.  

The film, a collaboration between actor James Franco and director Travis Mathews ("I Want Your Love," "In Their Room"), who has made quite the mark in the genre of "art porn," explores the motivations of all of the people involved with the recreation of Friedkin's scenes.  From Franco and Mathews to the various actors who must decide if it's worth appearing in something that will, to paraphrase the trailer, almost surely be called pornography, even if it's co-directed by a Hollywood star.

It debuted in a shorter form earlier this year in a New York fashion boutique, but here's the trailer for the extended cut, ready to debut in January in Park City:
