Here TV premieres a long-lost masterpiece of erotic queer cinema.
Queer television network Here TV is known for producing and distributing award-winning queer movies like Gods and Monsters and Shelter. Since 2004, Here TV has controlled the most extensive LGBTQ content library in the world. Their SVoD service features thousands of hours of award-winning movies, series, documentaries, and short films. Plus, they add new titles added every week, and sometimes, those titles are extra special.
A couple of weeks ago, Here TV quietly released something amazing; a restored edition of a classic French masterpiece of queer erotic cinema titled Equation to an Unknown. The story centers on a handsome young man who rides his motorcycles through a myriad of sexual encounters with seemingly innocent other young men. With very few words ever spoken, his journey starts in a soccer locker room and ends up with a steamy orgy, all played out to a rather ominous soundtrack.
Directed with absolute grace by the mysterious Dietrich de Velsa, Equation to an Unknown is his only film and stands without a doubt as a masterpiece and the best French gay erotica ever made. For three decades, the film has been considered long lost since its initial release in 1980. Here TV found the film and released it exclusively for their subscribers, but access film is a bit of a mystery.
Here’s how to access Equation to an Unknown:
- You have to have a Here TV account, so if you’re not a subscriber, you can’t access the film.
- For subscribers, all you have to do is log in and watch the clip “Too Hot for Here TV“.
- At the end of that clip, Underground star Charlie Harding reveals the film’s online location and provides a password.
- Go to that location, enter the password, and enjoy.
Equation to an Unknown is regarded as one of the most important and overlooked films in queer cinema history. If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth a look, but it’s very NSFW, so you might want to wait until you have a little alone time … if you catch our drift.
