Pete is a darkly handsome son of Greek immigrants, arriving in London with a simple plan – to make as much money as possible and become the world’s greatest male escort.
Brimming with revealing confessionals and intimate conversations, Greek Pete was filmed for over a year with young men working within and around the sex industry and the story is a representation of their world. The process blurs the boundary between fiction and documentary, giving an authentic and intimate insight into the boys’ lives. Honest, non-judgmental, and often tumescently explicit, the film offers an intense and fascinating portrait of a sub-culture hidden from view.
