Mark Blane and Ben Mankoff are thrilled and enthusiast. They wrote, directed and, as for Mark, acted in a fresh unusual and funny feature film with a weird lead character in New York, babysitting on a kid that sometimes looks his age and dreaming of a “Leather-man” who can steal his heart. A quirky film with purity, though. They tell us all about it.

Cubby: In this coming of age dramedy shot on 16mm, a misanthropic gay artist finds hope and self-discipline through his friendship with a sensitive 6 year old, Milo, and the adult superhero “Leather-man” who is conjured from a psychedelic cupcake.
