“Boys For Sale” In The Press

Boys For Sale” is the award-winning feature documentary about male sex workers in Tokyo’s 2-chome district that I was Director Of Photography and Producer on.

I think its great and I’m very proud of my work on it, but don’t take my word for it! Below is a regularly updated list of Press interviews, reviews and mentions of the film.

If you’ve seen the film please leave us a review on Rotten Tomatoes and if we’ve missed any press in the list below please let me know!
