Watch The Trailer For James Franco’s Gay Art Film

Co-directed by Franco, Interior. Leather Bar. explores the lost footage cut out of Cruising, the 1980 thriller starring Al Pacino. posted on

BuzzFeed first wrote about James Franco’s high-concept film in the late summer and now the first official look at the film is finally here.

Interior. Leather Bar. explores the lost footage cut from the film, Cruising. It was reported a graphic, 40-minute S&M scene was removed to avoid an X rating at the time.

Now, co-directors, James Franco and Travis Mathews, have come together to imagine their own lost footage.

According to the film’s site, lead actor Val Lauren “is repeatedly forced to negotiate his boundaries during scenes on and ‘off camera,’ as unsimulated gay sex happens around him. The film itself is constructed as a play with boundaries remaining queer in subject and form. As much a film about filmmaking as it is about an exploration of sexual and creative freedom, Interior. Leather Bar. defies easy categorization.”

The film stars Lauren and Christian Patrick and will make its official debut at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
