'Postcards from London' - Closes BFI Flare Festival

The 32nd edition of BFI Flare: London LGBTQ+ Film Festival opens with the UK premiere of My Days of Mercy and closes with the European premiere of Postcards from London.

The film tells the story of beautiful teenager Jim (TCG's Harris Dickinson) who, having travelled from the suburbs, finds himself in Soho where he falls in with a gang of unusual high class male escorts ‘The Raconteurs’. Set in a vibrant, neon-lit, imaginary vision of Soho, this morality tale manages to be both a beautifully shot homage to the spirit of Derek Jarman and a celebration of the homo-erotic in baroque art.
