Come see “Hollywood, Je T’aime” at Tokyo Lesbian Gay Film Festival

Los Angeles-based filmmakers Jason Bushman and Charles Herman-Wurmfeld arrived in Tokyo this weekend to show their film “Hollywood, Je T’aime” at the Tokyo Lesbian Gay Film Festival. Their film will be playing Thursday July 15 at 8 pm, and Saturday July 17 at 8:45 pm at Spiral Hall in Aoyama. The director-producer team will be at both showings for a Q&A. I’ll be there on Thursday, and encourage anyone in Tokyo to see their film or attend the festival.

The main star, a friend of the director, looks like a young Adrien Brody. It’s Jason and Charles’ first visit to Japan, and I tried to entertain them on Saturday night by showing them Ni-Chome, Hanazono Shrine (we prayed for their movie’s good fortune in Japan), Golden Gai, the male host area of Kabukicho, and finally Hagoromo, the gay-meets-yakuza sento in Nishi Shinjuku, where somehow I have become a regular.

  1. I saw Thursday’s premiere of the film at the Tokyo Lesbian and Gay film festival, and highly recommend it. You can see “Hollywood Je T’aime” in Tokyo again on Saturday, July 17, at 8:45 at its second festival showing. Great story full of ambition and grit, with amazing acting, soundtrack & costumes!
