synopsis
Death Drive is a 2015 American film written by Robert Felt and directed by L.E. Salas. The plot revolves around a hyper-sexual exploration of the self-destructive tendencies in gay male sexuality utilizing the mediums of independent film and dance to create a highly unique work of experimental film that transcends gender, genre and expectation. Guided by a non-conventional narrative and an ambient score, Death Drive includes a variety of explicit scenes containing non-simulated sexual intercourse with visible penetration and male ejaculation. Set in the desert of California, Death Drive tells the story of a young man, who after emerging from a pool of water scrambles to piece together the previous night before embarking on a series of psychedelic adventures that reveal his darkest internal instinct.

director
L.E. Salas is an award-winning filmmaker and visual artist who has had the honor of working and studying diverse, award-winning directors, producers and production companies. His professional directorial debut Far From the Island: A Cuban-American Documentary (2006), garnered attention from the academe and was invited to screen at colleges universities such as Duke, UVA, Seton Hall, Missou, and Yale. It would later become an official selection at the Orlando International Film Festival in 2008. Salas went on to work as assistant director on Canadian filmmaker Bruce LaBruce’s L.A. Zombie, which premiered at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland and made its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in 2010. In 2013, his allegorical docufiction Dead Man Working, about the recently deceased rising from their graves and taking jobs from the living during the current economic climate, was well received in the film festival circuit and garnered awards for “Best Editing,” “Best Screenplay” and “Best Feature.”
