FROM AFAR is the “masterly feature debut” (The New York Times) from Lorenzo Vigas and winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. Wealthy, middle-aged Armando lures young men to his home where he doesn’t want to touch them, only watch from a distance. A violent encounter with Elder, a street thug, doesn’t discourage the lonely man’s fascination with him, and financial interest keeps Elder visiting him regularly. Soon an unexpected intimacy emerges. Armando’s haunted past looms large, and Elder commits the ultimate act of affection.
