JULIAN by Antonio Da Silva

JULIAN is an experimental biographical piece about two men – Julian and Antonio – who disconnected themselves from the anxious city, and allowed their spirits to be taken by nature. It is a slightly voyeuristic love letter about and to Julian – the Swiss man whom the narrator has briefly met in London and, shortly after, invited to a road-trip to Portugal.

  1. Excellent! I’ve been meaning to shoot a short film that is aesthetically similar to this one – I’m glad I found out. It can most definitely serve as inspiration. I have an urgent question though: which camera did you use to shoot this?

  3. This was a beautiful homage to the man Julian. It was interesting that we only heard the narrator speak, until at the end we finally heard Julian, but only briefly. I wonder if he was upset that he didn’t get to do his Magnum impression. Someone else commented that this film made him sad. It could be because the narrators voice sounded a bit melancholy perhaps due to an unrequited love.

  7. I just discovered your films through an ad on Bateworld.com and I have to say I admire the artistry of what I’ve seen. I saw the trailer for Spunk, and I saw Julian. Both were very intriguing. Julian was beautiful in indescribable ways, and in my opinion, epic. He seems a very fascinating man, and if there was a longer documentary about him, I would certainly watch it. The trailer for Spunk dazzled me. It was hot and steamy, and the part that made me cum was where the guy had a tail in his ass and it seemed to move on its own. I’m a furry and tails are hot to me, especially if the guy has a hot ass, like he did. Anyway, towards the end, the sensory overload was entrancing. I couldn’t process all of the stimuli, but I couldn’t look away either. And I didn’t want to. There’s something very raw to your films, something edgy. Professional in design without appearing contrived. Sex is amazing on its own, in its raw state, and you have not only captured that raw artistic beauty. You have created an art form that is inspiring. Thank you for sharing your films. 🙂

  14. Really loved the film Julian – I have felt in my self a longing for some beauty in my life – there is real feeling in the camera work, it is as though i watch the film with a glint affection from the cameraman’s eye – in a way it was painful as the intimacy in the filming made me feel a lack of it in my present experience. I also love to experience the connection to nature you were observing in the film.

    In any case it promoted a surprising reaction, a thing of beauty, thank you.

  15. encontrei o teu trabalho enquanto estava a navegar em sites porno e esbarrei no “beach 19”- gostei bastante. Gostei da fotografia, da edição, da música, dos temas e da arte que está nos teus documentários. Não é pornografia de todo, mas há toda uma atmosfera sexual que pode ser encontrada em cada um, e, se não sexual, há, pelo menos uma nuance sensual. Por exemplo, no documentário “Julien ” que vi por ultimo, está, vejamos se encontro as palavras que fazem justiça: cinematográfico, cru, tem toda uma atmosfera selvagem “wild nature” bem intimista que nos leva a uma odisseia sobre o Julien. Adorei 🙂 poderia ser todo um BBC vida selvagem sobre um rapaz. Está muito genuíno, gostei muito da tua arte. Continua o teu trabalho 🙂

    I cannot express in words how much I truly appreciate your films. I believe the subjects you have explored are very important, as is the way you have framed them. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I feel as though your work shows a brutally honest representation of gay male sexuality – one that is still very much hidden and closeted. I think your work is important, bold and courageous and I continue to follow your career with enthusiasm.
