About the Film:
EROSION is a daring psychological drama about a man who is haunted by a failing relationship.  Gabe (Emmanuel Xuereb) devises a risqué game for escape.  He invites Irene (Charis Michelsen) to dinner at a lavish mansion.  Unhappily married, Irene finds the temptation irresistible when Gabe invites her on a second date.  To her surprise, she meets him at a humble suburban home.  Playfully, Gabe admits that he broke into both houses for their trysts.  A frightened Irene returns to her husband.  Unable to make peace with his past, Gabe escalates his pursuit of Irene, who ultimately surrenders to the thrill of abandoning her life and having sex with Gabe in strangers' homes.  House after house they push the boundaries of pleasure and pain, attempting to defy reality by living stolen lives -- but is there really an escape from life, and how far can they go before their past catches up with them?   Experience EROSION and find out for yourself...

Having been compared to a modern day LAST TANGO IN PARIS, EROSION offers a raw and truthful glimpse into the twisted, dark corners of the human heart and the price it takes to heal our wounds.

EROSION had its world premiere in June, 2005, at the Brooklyn International Film Festival. DFSis honored to be showcasing its second world screening; the first screening on the West Coast.
