All Boys is a documentary on the rise of the Czech Gay Adult Film Industry.
Czech actors and sites like BelAmi have risen to iconic status in the world of gay erotica, and director Heikkinen chronicles how cultural events like the Velvet Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall cleared the way for the gay porn industry’s ascent. While the young men who populate the films and photo shoots of such productions carry an air of sexual liberation, the dark truth is that many of the actors are troubled youths without viable career choices. Through beautiful cinematography, the film draws poetic parallels between the loneliness of the creators and consumers of adult film.
Yet, the often dark subject matter of All Boys is countered by the interviewee’s genuine longing for love and human connection. Scenes with one man who managed to move on from acting in gay porn to a seemingly traditional family life suggest that those involved in the industry can escape the perils of drugs and prostitution.
In a hyperconnected world where erotic material is never far out of reach, All Boys is required viewing. Behind every seductive image in adult media is a story, and All Boys is a film that’s intent on finding out how the story ends.
