Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label

   

An utterly fascinating, beautifully crafted exploration of the world of drag kings—women who dress, perform and/or live as men. Gabriel Baur’s quietly resplendent documentary is as carefully composed and structured as the manufactured masculine personae of the women she’s filming. Shot over a period of several years, we enter into the intimate lives of the films subjects, Drag King pioneer Diane Torr, garbed as her alter ego Danny King, German performance artist Bridge Markland and in London, Del LaGrace Volcano a photographer whose startling images take us into a subculture of “new men” who experiment with male hormones.
