“In Their Room- London” is a Film Project that is Sexually Charged but Not Porn, That’s Life

IN THEIR ROOM – LONDON is a fim project that is sexually fueled but not porn. Travis Mathews has a provocative point of view, skating the fine line of art, porn, sensuality and reflections of those issues within the lives of gay men. Mathews’ teaser are artistic and inmate, moments captured of gay men in their bedrooms, their natural habitat.

In Their Room (2009-present) is an on-going multi-city documentary series about gay men, bedrooms and intimacy. The series veers into the bedrooms of men where you see them doing everything from the most banal to the sometimes more. Complimenting the revealing nature of their everyday activities are confessional interviews about fantasies, turn-ons and vulnerabilities.

 

The throughline of the series highlights the ways in which gay men in disparate cultures deal with connection, intimacy and loneliness in the modern world. In an age of accelerated gay acceptance and visibility, it’s shocking that many of these stories are being left undocumented. My inspiration for the series came largely out of such a frustration. If representations of my life -and that of my friends- were largely going unseen in the media I reasoned that I should be recording these stories before they were lost or forgotten. I do this as best I can focusing on what feels authentic, modern and uncensored. MORE
