In the Grayscale (En las Gamas de Gris)
Handsome architect Bruno finds himself living alone after a recent separation from his wife. Their problems stem from Bruno’s description of marriage in transitional terms instead of finite. A new monument project for the Chilean capital city of Santiago connects Bruno to history teacher Fer who is gay and out and sees sexuality as either black or white. Fer quickly senses Bruno’s curiosity and helps him explore the possibilities after a few bike trips around the city. Afterward, Fer is frustrated with Bruno’s inability to define their relationship and his own sexuality, preferring to live in the grayscale. In Spanish with subtitles.
