John Butler's Papi Chulo Selected for World Premiere at 2018 Toronto International Film Festival
24 Jul 2018 : Nathan Griffin
John Butler’s third feature ‘Papi Chulo’ has been selected for the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

The title will receive its world premiere at the festival and screen as a Special Presentation, with additional strands announced in the coming weeks.

‘Papi Chulo’ marks Butler’s third time receiving a world premiere at TIFF following the critically acclaimed ‘The Stag’ (2013) and ‘Handsome Devil’ (2016).

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’ is produced by Rebecca O’Flanagan and Robert Walpole of Treasure Entertainment, and stars Matt Bomer and Alejandro Patino. The title is supported by Screen Ireland.

The 43rd Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 6th – 16th, 2018.
