The Feast Of Stephen

(See also: TEDDY TODAY Feb. 13, 2010)


Stephen schaut einer Gruppe Jungs beim Basketballspielen zu. Sein Blick verrät sein sexuelles Interesse. Als die Jungs das mitbekommen, wird er zum Opfer ihrer Homophobie. Oder scheint das nur so? THE FEAST OF STEPHEN basiert auf dem gleichnamigen Gedicht des amerikanischen Poeten Anthony Hecht. Dieses Gedicht liess James Franco seit dem erstmaligen Lesen nie wieder los. Um das Gefühl, dass das Gedicht bei ihm auslöste, visualisieren zu können, orientierte sich Franco an Kenneth Angers rebellischem Kurzfilm SCORPIO RISING, der 1964 stilistisch, ästhetisch und thematisch Filmgeschichte schrieb.

Stephen watches a group of boys playing basketball. The look in his eyes betrays his sexual interests. When the boys realize, he becomes a victim of their homophobia. Or does it only seem so? THE FEAST OF STEPHEN is based on a poem by the same title, written by american poet Anthony Hecht. The peom stayed with James Franco since he read it for the first time. In order to visualize the feelings that had been triggered in him, Franco was geared to Kenneth Anger´s rebellious shortfilm SCORPIO RISING, which in 1964 stilistically, aesthetically and thematically made cinematic history.
