    As Jürgen pursues his new-found crush he stumbles upon a tantalisingly bizarre array of LA’s weirdest residents, including a born again country singer, a razor blade masochist, a mortician cum dominatrix and an amputee fetishist. HUSTLER WHITE is an old-fashioned love story wrapped up in titillation, depravity and the most mind-bending of back room shenanigans.

    Sunset Boulevard injected with the collected juices of Kenneth Anger and David Lynch... a classic of its genre.

    I try to contradict myself at least once a day, it’s a healthy exercise. If you are too sure about everything, if your politics become doctrine, then you’re not actually living in the real world.

    Bruce LaBruce was born in Southampton, Canada in 1964. He began his career in the mid-eighties making a series of short experimental super 8 films and co-editing, with G. B. Jones, a punk fanzine called J.D.s, which launched the queercore movement. He attended film school in Toronto and studied film theory at York University. His film HUSTLER WHITE screened in the Berlinale Panorama in 1996 and was his first international cinema success. His 2013 film GERONTOPHILIA screened at many festivals including Festival du Nouveau Cinéma Montréal where it won the award for Best Feature Film. His work has often featured in the Berlinale, such as PIERROT LUNAIRE which screened in the 2014 Forum Expanded and won the Teddy Award. His latest film THE MISANDRISTS also screened in Berlinale Panorama.
