    • Synopsis
    • Pete arrives in London with the hope of increasing his business as an escort, always
      up for it and always horny, a fantasy for those willing to pay. Not only is the money
      better in the big city, there are more opportunities to be had and Pete has goals and
      ambitions. He wants a flat in central London, a decent laptop and some good
      promotional photos to help with trade. If he works hard and becomes the best escort
      that he can be, perhaps a nomination at the ‘World Escort Awards’ in Los Angeles
      could be more than just a vague dream. His plans get complicated when he meets
      LondonboyKai, a fellow escort on the scene, and starts a relationship. While Pete
      can easily separate his job from his love life, Kai has a harder time sharing his
      boyfriend with clients. Both are searching for very different things in life.
      Greek Pete was filmed over a year using guys working within and around the sex
      industry and the story is a fictional representation of their world. The process blurs
      the boundary between fiction and documentary, giving an authentic and intimate
      insight into the boys’ lives, their friends, relationships and clients. Honest, nonjudgemental
      and sometimes explicit, the film aims to create a portrait of a sub-culture
      hidden from view.
