Watch The First Clip From ‘Gerontophilia’ by Canadian Bad Boy Bruce La Bruce

gerontophilia_02

With each film, Canadian-born, queer auteur, Bruce La Bruce (No Skin Off My Ass, Hustler White, The Raspberry Reich) improves his filmmaking excellence. The filmmaker has spent decades making fierce, hilarious and generally haphazard indie films with a sharp political edge. Now the iconic provocateur returns with this subversively tender tale Gerontophilia; about the intimate bond between a teenage nursing home attendant and an elderly resident. TIFF describes it as, LaBruce taking satiric aim at both the desire for mainstream, and even conventional films within the queer community and the youth-obsessed nature of gay (and straight) culture. Watch the first clip below.
