No Skin Off My Ass

Directed by Bruce LaBruce

With LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Klaus von Brucker

(1993) 73min, 16mm

Queer-core godfather Bruce La Bruce stars in his first feature, a loose riff on Altman’s That Cold Day in the Park, about a lonely hairdresser who goes ga ga for a strong, silent skinhead when he picks him up at the park and gives him a bubble bath. The grainy, dirty black-and-white 8mm format perfectly suits La Bruce’s merging of gay porn and art film aesthetics. Kurt Cobain famously declared this sexually explicit Canadian comedy his favorite film, and Amy Taubin described it in The Village Voice as “sweeter than Warhol, subtler than Kuchar, sexually more explicit than Van Sant.” 

The Yo-Yo Gang

Directed by G.B. Jones

(1992) 30min, DigiBeta

With a cast of notable queer post-punk riot grrrl musicians, including G.B. Jones herself, this 8mm spark plug depicts the eruption of a gangwar between rival girl gangs. An ode to female power, aggression, and transgression with punk rock musical interludes.
