Event description

Description

Queer|Art|Pride dives into darkness with this special work-in-progress screening of director Rodrigo Bellott’s new queer horror film Blood-Red Ox. In Bellott’s second feature film, Amir, a Lebanese-American journalist and his boyfriend Amat are on assignment in Bolivia to report on imminent environmental threats to the rainforest, but their visit quickly takes a bizarre turn as Amat begins having visions of a nightmarish creature that is half-man, half-ox. Amir must save his boyfriend before these visions consume him, but he will quickly realize nothing and nobody is to be trusted—not even himself.

Rodrigo Bellott is a Bolivian filmmaker, playwright, and producer—and a 2015-2016 Queer|Art|Mentorship alum. His breakout hit Sexual Dependency marked the rebirth of Bolivian cinema as the country’s first official submission for “Best Foreign Language Film” at the 2004 Academy Awards. Bellott’s Who Killed the White Llama? was the most successful box-office hit in Bolivia’s history, leading to Variety magazine naming him one of the Top Ten Latin American talents to watch in 2007. After receiving two masters degrees in screenwriting and directing at Binger Film Lab in Amsterdam in 2011, Bellott founded NARRATIVE ENGINEER, LLC, a production company in New York City. At Queer|Art|Mentorship, Bellott worked with Mentor, filmmaker Silas Howard on the film adaptation of his play Tu Me Manques, which is now in post-production and stars Oscar Martinez and Rossy De Palma. Bellott is currently adapting Tu Me Manques for Broadway and is developing a new project at the New Museum.
