The third film screening at the 2014 GFEST – Gaywise FESTival exhibits different approaches for the different and complex periods of life. A gay man reviewing his own trajectory sets the tone of The Last Farewell (2013), a short film written and directed by Swedish director Casper Andreas. Although not a frequent subject in GLBT productions, this delicate story is a profound reflection on the different stages of our life and the moment when some choices have a limited time to be made. This award-winner drama has been seen in many festivals around the world. +A LAST FAREWELL (INTERNATIONAL POSTER -jpeg) Leonardo and Gabriel 2 On the other edge, The Way He Looks is a story about young people and how their choices can also be complex.
