In the bonus interview on the DVD for his 2014 film “4 Moons,” director Sergio Tovar Velarde revealed he was inspired by the concept of the four stages of a man’s life. In this film, he crafts the story of men of various ages struggling with coming out, accepting themselves and forging lives with love.
A schoolboy acts on his attraction to an older pal, forcing his parents to come to terms with his sexuality. Two college friends fall in love, but the stress of the closet might be too much for both of them. A thirtysomething couple, together for years, find their relationship threatened by an outsider. An older man faced with the end of his career and perhaps the finality of his life becomes obsessed with a hustler.
