Writer/director Steve Kokker's pair of films explore the lives of Russian seamen and cadets with an unusual intimacy and in a gloriously homoerotic way. The short film, Birch tells the story of a gay seduction of a soldier. And the feature, Komrades goes behind the scenes with a group of naval cadets. (In true underground style, this film was made on low-tech equipment and is not of the highest image and sound quality.)

This title ships on a DVD-R format disc. Please note, some DVD players may not be able to play this format. Please make sure your DVD player is compatible with this format before purchasing this title.

but that soon morphed into sorrow. I watched "Birch" first (as it was the "Directors" first film).
"Komrades" is nothing more than a longer version of "Birch" I will say this, if I had the foresight to video interview every "straight" boy that c... Read More
