A POWERFUL EVOCATION OF A YOUNG MAN’S LIFE AND A QUEER LOVE LETTER TO 1960s PARIS
1968. The world is on fire, and so is the imagination of a young English photographer hungry for self-knowledge. But knowledge comes at a price. When he swaps London for Paris on the eve of the May événements, falling disastrously for handsome Lafcadio in the process, the stage is set for the fateful choice that threatens to curse Billy forever. The road from innocence to experience has seldom been as sensitively mapped as in this meticulously scripted psychodrama that is also a hallucinatory metafiction, a hymn to photography, and a vivid portrait of the age.
