A film project which explores the humanity behind the online gay community in Reykjavík has been released online. In TORSO Reykjavík director Tim Marshall seeks to uncover the vast and varied stories existing within it by interviewing men who use popular dating apps such as Grindr and Scruff .
Full of interesting facts and revelations about the online gay community in Iceland, such as how Icelanders tend to shy away from sleeping with other Icelander because of the small size of the LGBT community; how dating apps can also be a platform to make great friends and acquaintances; and how a popular newbie in the online gay community can quickly build a reputation for sleeping around if he’s not careful.
TORSO Reykjavík is part of an online documentary style series that started in Sydney, Australia in 2013 and continued shooting throughout 2014 in Los Angeles and Reykjavík. It premiered at RIFF (Reykjavík International Film Festival) in October 2014.
