First Look Trailer Released for John Butler's 'Papi Chulo'
08 May 2019 : Nathan Griffin
Matt Bomer and Alejandro Patino in 'Papi Chulo'.
The first look trailer for John Butler’s third feature ‘Papi Chulo’ has been released ahead of its US theatrical release on June 7th.

Cast adrift in Los Angeles, Sean — a lonely TV weatherman — drives past a middle-aged Latino migrant worker standing outside Home Depot looking for work. He decides to hire this kind-looking man — to be his friend. Sean is young, gay and white; Ernesto, portly, straight and married. Despite having nothing in common, they build sort of a friendship based on sign language, until Sean becomes consumed by a deep and obsessional attraction.

 ‘Papi Chulo’ stars Matt Bomer and Alejandro Patino and is produced by Rebecca O’Flanagan and Robert Walpole of Treasure Entertainment. Cathal Watters features as DoP, editor is John Connor, music by John McPhillips, production design by Susannah Honey and costume design by Joanna David.

The film received financing from Screen Ireland, Head Gear Films, RTÉ and Windmill Lane. Head Gear Films’ Phil Hunt and Compton Ross executive produce alongside Bankside’s Hilary Davis and Stephen Kelliher.

The film received its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last September. It screened as a Special Presentation and marked Butler’s third time receiving a world premiere at TIFF following the critically acclaimed ‘The Stag’ (2013) and ‘Handsome Devil’ (2016).

The film is expected make its theatrical release in Ireland later this year.
