This weekend at OUTFEST, the brilliant love story FIREBIRD premiers. We have the film's star and co-screenwriter Tom Prior, and the film's director and co-screenwriter Peeter Rebane in the house!
The film is impeccably produced. It is both beautiful and tragic, erotic and yet innocent. The performances are stunning and the film has the potential to be a classic iconic piece.
The story is " set in the Soviet Air Force during the Cold War. Sergey, a troubled young private, is counting the days till his military service ends. His life is turned upside down when a daring fighter pilot, Roman arrives at the base. Driven by curiosity, Sergey and Roman navigate the precarious line between love and friendship as a dangerous love triangle forms between them and Luisa, the secretary to the base Commander. Sergey is forced to face his past as Roman’s career is endangered and Luisa struggles to keep her family together. As the walls close in, they risk their freedom and their lives in the face of an escalating KGB investigation and the fear of the all-seeing Soviet regime. Based on a true story."
