Campfire (2000)

A lovesick boy scout is forced to choose between his girlfriend and his best friend as their camping trip turns into a tension-filled journey of self discovery. Shot by Chantal Akerman’s favoured cinematographer, Jean-Claude Neckelbrouck, Campfire is filled with magical images of lush, rolling countryside, insects and animals scurrying about in the dead of night, pensive glances and water dripping off bathing bodies.

Sailor (1998)

A simple story about a teenager who falls in love with a sailor, Defurne’s extraordinary magical and poignant film perfectly captures the dreams and uncertainty of first love that has not yet been tainted by cynicism. After they part the boy imagines his sailor’s adventures across a mythical, star-lit sea and into the depths of a jungle, confident in the knowledge that he occupies the sailor’s thoughts.

Capturing the moment when a seventeen-year-old boy is about to leave the safety of childhood behind him, Particularly Now, in Spring, although not specifically gay, aches with gay desire. Defurne’s camera frames the boys as they compete in athletics like characters from Leni Riefensthal’s ‘Olympia’, and we suspect that what bonds them so closely may be unspoken, or even unconscious, desire. Particularly Now, in Spring was Defurne’s first film to achieve extensive exposure at international film festivals.

Saint (1997)

Few artists have managed to make the violent death of the scantily-clad Saint Sebastian appear quite so seductive and horrific simultaneously. Olaf Nollen’s martyr is also the most beautiful saint in cinema’s reliquary, his unmoving, placid expression almost devastating and uncomfortably desirable. Defurne’s build-up to the first arrow being fired grips with agonising tension and a brilliantly timed false start delivers a coupe de cinema worthy of Hitchcock.
