The Last Party

A Film by Riccardo Angelucci

Synopsis

The Last Party holds the desires and fears of a young man that has to face his own nature in the last chance he has to come clear with himself and the people he loves. But discovering your most intimate nature it’s a long, tortuous journey, where dreams turn into nightmares and temptations are hard to resist. Even if you are the son of God. Through a whirlwind of emotions, anguish, and conflict Jesus will, in fact, have to face the ultimate battle against the most feared opponent: himself. By following his last day on Earth – in a modern re-imagination of The Last Supper inspired by the surrealistic, kitsch and pop nature of David LaChapelle’s work – this path will lead you to new depths of love, self-discovery, and friendship with an unusual flamboyant narrative zest. In creating an out-of-time and out-of-space reality The Last Party attempts to depict a unique world to breach the barriers between homosexuality and religion in a universe where being gay is nothing short than normal and it is peacefully accepted. As in the end, all you need is love.
