A gay man, his mother, and his lover are caught in a cannibal docudrama, precarious in their relationship between what is on and off screen. In His Bold Gaze delves into the life of Armin Meiwes, a computer repair technician from Rotenburg, Germany, who in 2001 devoured Bernd Brandes, an engineer from Berlin.
