Manufacturer Part No:
When it was released in 1978,
was billed as the first film from the United Kingdom to deal with gay life in a positive light. Viewed almost 30 years later it is a time capsule from a time that does not seem all that different from today.
Jim, a seemingly average teacher in a comprehensive school, lives the classic double life: nights in the gay bars and discos, days in school – and in the closet. With each new acquaintance the same tensions arise, does he venture beyond his current life style, who does he tell the truth to, and is there anything more to gay life than the one night stand?
His worlds collide when he’s confronted by his students. Asked if he is “bent” Jim does not retreat to the closet but gives the boys a resounding lesson in tolerance that still reverberates today.

Three short films by one of Greece’s finest filmmakers. Constantine Giannaris has gone on to prove himself as a powerful director in features such as “From the Edge of the City” and “3 Steps to Heaven,” but before them came his short films.
Although surrounded by pumped up muscle boys at the gay disco, Harry (John Hannah) is alone. The odd shaped birthmark on his face sees to that. In the dark room he finds the touch of other men but once the lights come up, again he is alone.
Strip Jack Naked
“Strip Jack Naked” is a companion piece to Rob Peck’s ground breaking 1978 film, “Nighthawks.” Made thirteen years later, is is an autobiographical film that tells not only of the struggle to make “Nighthawks” but also of the director’s life as a gay man.
