D?niel, the most recent work from London based director Dean Loxton, will have its worldwide premiere at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on the 20th June.
D?niel follows a day in the life of a Hungarian male escort living in London funding his studies through various male clients. It is an intimate insight into the qualms and isolation that being a male escort can bring in the modern city. When asked about sex work, director Dean Loxton says ?I find sex work honest, of course with any work you can end up focusing on the money and becoming hard, but I imagine that if done with care a prostitute can make an essential difference to a person?s life.? The film leaves food for thought as the tender topic of sex work is touched upon in a profound and impartial way that will leave you pondering your own stance.

He is kind, patient, doesn’t take drugs, studies hard and is?working?part time as a male escort to pay for his tuition fees.?D?niel is invited by his close friend Nori to have?lunch with mutual Hungarian friends.
