Our Gay Brothers

USA, 1993 (MIFF 1993, Experimental)

Director: Greta Snider

This collage of found film footage, assembles porn movie, children's instructional film, sports coverage and 50s Hollywood musicals to con­struct an investigation of gay men's differing attitudes towards the female body. A clever and contentious film.
