Compelling feature film about erotic fluidity

Show me What You Got follows two queer men and the female lover who enters their relationship.

Winner of multiple awards at international film festivals, Show Me What You Got will stream on the Labz Live platform and via theatrical partners on February 12, just in time for Valentine’s Day. And it is a most unusual story about love.

Three late-twentysomethings come together to create a wholehearted ménage à trois in this playfully erotic tale that sparks with the restless energy of the French New Wave. In a richly filmed black-and-white Los Angeles, each member of the threesome is in transition: fun-loving Marcello (Mattia Minasi) from under the thumb of his Italian soap star father, soulful French-Iranian actor Nassim (Neyssan Falahi) toward a more fulfilling career, and artist Christine (Cristina Rambaldi) through the grief following the death of her grandfather.

The frolicsome trio finds joy and release together—exploring their sexuality, joining political protests, making art, and falling deeper into their unconventional amour—until Marcello must return to Italy and their experience there threatens the delicate balance of their relationship.

Director Svetlana Cvetko is renowned for her cinematography on critically acclaimed documentaries, including OSCAR® Winner Inside Job, OSCAR® Nominated Facing Fear, the Cannes Official Selection Red Army, and the Sundance US Documentary Special Jury Prize winning Inequality For All. She adeptly captures this love affair with a deliciously modern Jules et Jim flair, combining tenderness, artistry, and three fresh and appealing leads.

“I made this film because I wanted to tell the story of three young millennials who challenge and question the social norms surrounding love, and expand acceptance beyond its current boundaries – acceptance of who we are and who we love,” says director Svetlana Cvetko.

“The film’s main character, Christine, is a strong, empowered woman who is comfortable in her own skin. She knows how to say no in her relationships, but she’s also secure enough to know when to say yes as well. The film touches on the themes of sexual equality, female empowerment, sex positivity, polyamory, questioning, and the immigrant experience.”
