Director Angelique Bosio is currently wrapping things up on The Advocate For Fagdom, a feature length documentary on Canada's gay art punk provocateur featuring interview segments with John Waters, Harmony Korine, Gus Van Sant and others. Here's the official synopsis:
At turns, a transgressive artist in the purest sense of the term, the spiritual son of Kenneth Anger and John Waters, or leader of the Queercore movement, one thing is certain : Bruce Labruce makes small budget movies full of hardcore sex, political messages and containing as much violence as tenderness, in which he happily crushes any gay attitude clichés while practicing ironic self glorification, mocks any horror movie or dramatic set ups, and avoids all fashionable art trends.
