The two virtual unknowns have star-making turns in director Alexis Langlois’ audacious ode to the world of early 2000s pop music.

Gio Ventura was first introduced to acting via a poster in his high school, which was a call for auditions for a student short film. “I went to the casting and then I realized that the role was inspired by my ex-girlfriend. [The director] didn’t know I recognized her,” Ventura says with a laugh. “It was really easy to get into the character.”

Ventura would spend the next couple of years acting in a handful of short films before heading to Paris, where he began his professional career five years ago. He says of the city: “I got to meet more queer filmmakers that were making the movies that I actually go to see.”
