Director:Arthur Bressan, Jr.



One of cinema's first coming out stories, this debut feature from pioneering gay filmmaker Arthur J. Bressan, Jr. (FORBIDDEN LETTERS, BUDDIES) tells the story of Robert, a young, closeted gay man who finds love, acceptance, and activism through a Berkley Barb ad. Critically acclaimed upon release and long-unavailable since, PASSING STRANGERS is a romantic portrait of the gay liberation era that still resonates today. Newly restored by the Bressan Project from its original film elements.

"The joyful revelation of what must be the very finest personal and artistic success in the history of gay erotic cinema." - Lee Atwell, Gay Sunshine
