NQV Media’s The Male Gaze series returns with a new selection of short films in The Boy is Mine. Our journey starts with Uneven. As a discarded old sock dreams of the life it once had with its owner, its tatty threadbare body longs to be touched. Director Rafael Ruiz Espejo plays with the beauty of the male form in creating a delightfully humourous ode to the cum-rag as our intrepid sock is tossed to one side, only to find a new connection. In Wolves, sixteen-year-old Josh (Roly Botha) finds solace and peace in the woods surrounding his house. But, when an afternoon spent catching bugs leads to the discovery of a naked young man who doesn’t speak, Josh is both captivated, nervous and enthralled. However, as both boys build a new non-verbal bond of security, love and experimentation in the undergrowth, the adult world invades their security.

Johnny is the tale of two unlikely companions, one timid and unsure and the other full of energy and artistic desire. But can they both find more than just a fleeting romance in the arms of each other? Or will the unspoken doubts in their minds stop the birth of a new romance? These questions also find a powerful voice in Debut as two young models meet in the studio of a female magazine photographer. Here a spark of instant desire is lit between them before the impromptu photoshoot turns into a heated and dangerous experiment in sexual art. Finally, Guardian explores the mental turmoil of a life lived in compartments, one with a loving boyfriend and the other in a repressed world of chaos.
