Tweetable Logline:

FOURPLAY = Four short tales of sexual intimacy.

Elevator Pitch:

FOURPLAY is a feature quartet of stories in which characters’ lives are changed by unusual sexual encounters. In Skokie, a woman with a crush on her minister’s wife has an intense weekend with their dog. In Austin, a couple debates baby-making and comes to an unusual compromise. In Tampa, a man plagued with self-doubt looks for satisfaction in a public mall bathroom and unexpectedly finds his sexual savior. And in San Francisco, a cross-dressing sex-worker faces a challenging assignment with a quadriplegic man. The standalone short FOURPLAY: TAMPA premiered at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight and is playing at Sundance.

About the Production:

“Our goal with each of the films that comprise FOURPLAY is to provide understanding for characters participating in sexual acts that might otherwise be considered deviant. Living, as we continue to do, in a puritanical society, I find it unacceptable that the most psychotic depictions of violence are more commonplace than emotionally engaging stories drawn from the vast range of human sexual expression. These are not morality tales. Instead, the team that collaborated on FOURPLAY hope to create a cultural conversation regarding sex, a multifaceted force that deserves continued creative, critical, and adult investigation” — Kyle Henry
