Ramon sets the stage for a queer love story that explores the origins of iconic Beatles character Mean Mr. Mustard. Nichols’ song and accompanying film constitutes a queer interpretation of the Beatles song that adds new depth and meaning to what John Lennon once referred to as “a bit of crap I wrote in India.” It just goes to show that one person’s trash is another’s (queer) treasure.
The Ramon film is part one in a two-part narrative arc that tells part of the story at the center of Nichols’ rock opera. Part two, “Jerome”, drops in May. Caleb Nichols' Ramon drops June 24th.
