Humpday
USA / 2009 / 94 min
DIRECTOR:
Lynn Shelton
Happy Humpity Humpday

After a drunken night, newly reunited college room mates Ben and Andrew conclude that if the two of them – as a pair of heterosexual males – have sex in front of a camera, it will transcend homosexuality, bromance and pornography and enter the world of art. The question is how to deal with the practicalities - and most importantly: Who' going to tell Ben's wife Anna?

HUMPDAY is a intimate portrayal of male friendship which manages to be both profound and one of this year's funniest films.
