‘The Misandrists’ Trailer: Queer Porn Icon Bruce LaBruce’s Lesbian Cult Comedy Takes Patriarchy by the Balls

Entertainment

Man-haters, rejoice! The Female Liberation Army is here to save us. Or at least, keep us fired up and entertained. Fresh from a run at Europe’s top film festivls, including a premiere at the Berlinale, comes “The Misandrists.” Directed by legendary gay filmmaker Bruce LaBruce (“Gerontophilia,” “Hustler White”), “The Misandrists” follows the dissidents of the FLA, a militant lesbian separatist cult whose primary goal is to dismantle the patriarchy — by any means necessary.

Set in 1999, “Somewhere in Ger(wo)many,” the film follows a young radical named Isolde (Kita Updike) who falls in love with boy dissident Volker (Til Schindler). Stowing him away in the basement of the FLA’s country manor so she can nurse his wounds, Isolde fears discovery by Big Mother (Susanne Sachsse). No men are allowed on the commune, and lesbian sex is encouraged, as Big Mother believes it is the only way to female liberation. She will stop at nothing in her quest to liberate all women, overthrow the patriarchy, and establish a new world order. When the police come knocking for the missing boy, Big Mother begins to suspect something is amiss in her Sapphic paradise.

Dripping with radical feminist politics, bone-dry campy humor, and a punk drag aesthetic, “The Misandrists” is an epic gift from the father of queercore, and a bold vision of a world without men. Cartilage Films will open “The Misandrists” on May 25 at Village East Cinema in New York, expanding to Los Angeles on June 1 at the Nuart Theatre, with LaBruce in attendance at both.
