Cinephobia Releasing is excited to announce their inaugural release. After an acclaimed run on the global queer film festival circuit, Sublime will be available across North America starting June 20 on DVD, Cable and Digital VOD, including Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play and Vudu.
Filmed in Argentina, Sublime marks the feature length debut of writer/director Mariano Biasin and lead actor Martín Miller, in a touching portrayal of first love alongside co-lead Teo Inama Chiabrando.
Sublime made its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, kicking off a worldwide screening tour, includes BFI Flare, Outfest, Rainbow Reel Tokyo and AFI Latin American Film Festival. The film took home the Sebastiane Latino Award at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and the Grand Jury Prize in the Ibero-American Competition at the Seattle International Film Festival.
Shy 16-year-old Manuel (Martín Miller) comes alive when he, his best friend Felipe (Teo Inama Chiabrando) and other buddies form a garage rock band. The two boys, friends since childhood, have a close, easy relationship made even more intense with the band and their music making. Strains develop for Manuel when his best mate starts dating a girl. Manuel also begins to date a female classmate, yet all the while suppressing his nascent sexual feelings for Felipe. Confused, and fearful that his feelings are not mutual, he retreats into himself, eventually lashing out which forces him to confront his feelings head on.
Sublime: 100 minutes
