WATCH: Filipino Gay Wrestler Comedy ‘Fuchsia Libre’ Releases Funny Trailer

Fuchsia Libre

Mavx Productions has released a hilarious teaser for the Filipino drama-comedy ‘Fuchsia Libre’ featuring Paolo Contis and John Arcilla.

The teaser for the gay wrestling film was released on September 15, Friday, featuring Arcilla and Contis as a father-son duo.

The clip starts off with Contis’ character leaving the house for a meeting and Arcilla stopping his son to berate him for being seen with another woman different from the one he was seen with a week ago. Arcilla remarks that his son should be more like him and Contis says yes. He leaves the house, picks up his phone, and then changes his tone, revealing his true nature.

 

Watch the funny teaser below:

Details are still unknown for the movie except that Contis will be playing a gay wrestler seeking the acceptance of his authoritarian father, played by the award-winning Arcilla.

On playing a gay character, Contis promised viewers in an interview with Inquirer Entertainment that it “will not be a caricature” and that he intends to take the role seriously  in order to “not fail a huge group.”

“First of all, I agreed to do the project because of its serious take on the role of the LGBTQIA+ community in our society. I want to help broaden people’s understanding and acceptance of their group. This is the main challenge of the movie for me. I recently received materials that I’m supposed to study for this role,” he said.

Meanwhile, Arcilla said that he liked that the story is “very relevant.” The Venice International Film Festival Best Actor winner said that it is “good” that issues related to the queer community are being discussed in detail as opposed to being “dismissive” albeit people still have no idea how to be accepting.

“Are we able to truthfully accept or are we merely trying to tolerate them? As for the gay son, will he still be happy with his identity if his parents reject him?” Arcilla said in the interview.

Details of the premiere of ‘Fuchsia Libre’ are still kept under wraps. Stay tuned to BLTai for more updates.
