Following the success of MQFF audience favourites Plan B, Absent and Hawaii, Marco Berger continues his assent to queer auteur status with Taekwondo. For his latest effort, Berger has teamed up to co-direct with fellow Argentinian Martín Farina – a cinematographer with a penchant for a voyeuristic gaze. In this ‘will they, won't they' drama, we have the sweet Fernando hosting a summer getaway for his often-naked friends, including Germán, a shy teammate from his taekwondo class. Full to the brim of lingering close ups Taekwondo tantalises with its homoerotic depiction of male bonding.
