Hang Time! A Clip From James Franco's Queer Naked Basketball Short [NSFW]

The festival run for James Franco's student film The Feast of Stephen has stretched from Las Vegas (where Movieline had a look last June) to Berlin, where last week it won a Teddy Award for excellence in queer cinema. And now, finally, a taste of the film has arrived online, confirming for a vast new viewership what we privileged few had known all along: When it comes to depicting the NSFW, slow-motion collision of penises and basketball, Franco is without peer.

Based on Anthony Hecht's poem, the film basically tracks one young man's daydream from a New York basketball court to a sexualized beating in Central Park. Naked hoops and heavy breathing make up much of the rest, of which the recently unveiled clip below is quite the showcase. Its release may or may not have something to do with the news of the Teddy Award; coincidentally, Franco's Howl was nominated for the feature-film Teddy, but lost to the lesbian darling The Kids Are All Right.

So... yeah. Gay.
