Sebastiane is hailed as the first film to portray unconcealed homosexuality in a positive light and also the first film entirely in Latin. Taking place in 300 A.D. in a womanless society, the men are left to freely express their desires with one another. Sebastiane, based on St. Sebastian, is the object of lust from a centurion, whose advances he rejects, the consequences of which are steep.
