French gay porn actor Francois Sagat is
making his move to the big screen in the premiere of Homme au Bain
(Man at Bath).
The film premiered last week at
Switzerland's Locarno Film Festival, a showcase for arthouse films.
Sagat, who can be seen under the same
name in numerous Titan Media titles, plays Emmanuel, a gay hustler
living with his lover Omar (played by Omar Ben Sellem) outside Paris.
After the pair quarrel, Emmanuel is
left brokenhearted to fend for himself as Omar makes his way to
Manhattan. Even as Emmanuel is busy turning his best asset (his hot
ass) into cash, he resentfully pines away for his lover.
Director Christophe Honore told French
gay website Yagg.com that he was interested in Sagat because he
“redefines the notion of masculinity.”
The film opens in France on September
Sagat's heavily muscled body and
trademark tattooed head can also be seen in Director Bruce LaBruce's
controversial gay zombie flick L.A. Zombie. The Australia
classification board recently banned the film from screening at the
Melbourne International Film Festival.
In the film, Sagat stars as a
schizophrenic gay zombie who believes he can bring the dead back to
life by having sex with them. The film includes graphic scenes of
zombies having sexual intercourse.
