In Their Room is a continuing Travis Mathews endeavour that captures the private thoughts, feelings, and day-to-day activities of a diversity of gay men. The clips are shot in men’s bedrooms in order to create an atmosphere of closeness and intimacy between viewer and subject. The project began in 2009 with the twenty-minute-long In Their Room: San Francisco, followed by In Their Room:Berlin in 2011, and In Their Room: London was released in 2013.
Loosely inspired by the Hollywood lore surrounding 1980’s Cruising, the docu-drama Interior. Leather Bar crafts a new interpretation of the famous missing footage from the Al Pacino film. Directed by James Franco and Travis Mathews, this film began is a low budget short and became a provocative feature exploring sexual freedom.
