The Open Reel deals with German production company Cosmic Productions on the acquisition of the feature film Boy Meets Boy, directed by Daniel Sánchez López, starring Alexandros Koutsoulis and Matthew James Morrison and produced with Lucía Sapelli and the co-production of Taiwan based company GagaOOLala.
Harry has been partying for 48 hours when he meets Johannes on the dance floor of a club in Berlin. With 15 hours until his flight home, Johannes offers to help him print his boarding pass. This mundane task leads to a day together wandering the city. The contrasts in their lives and values force each one to confront their own truths. Boys Meet Boys is a feature length mumblecore about the journey of a brief encounter: the mark left by a fleeting moment of joy.
