The Advocate For Fagdom | 2010
A look at the life and work of Canadian underground filmmaker Bruce LaBruce. Born in Southampton, Ontario in 1964, he attended film school in Toronto and the studied film theory at New York University. He has worked for gay punk fanzines and produced Super 8mm films. Mixing gay porn with the artistic mores of independent cinema, LaBruce's work crushes any gay attitude cliches while practicing ironic self glorification, mocks any horror movie or dramatic set ups, and avoids all fashionable art trends. Here, archival materials are combined with statements from his collaborators and famous colleagues including John Waters, Gus Van Sant, Harmony Korine and Richard Kern, culminating in an intimate portrait of a singular person blessed with singular talents.
