Bruce LaBruce is back at it and needs your support to get his latest feature film into your life.
LaBruce says his new flick Gerontophilia is a bit of a departure from his usual, it’s a full blown narrative with frank but not explicit sex but it still contains all of the signature’s of a Bruce LaBruce film, pushing boundaries and transgressing taboos and exploring the sexual twilight zone.
“An 18 year old boy who discovers he has a fetish for the aged gets a job in a nursing home and develops an intimate relationship with one particular old man.”
“Think Harold and Maude meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with a little bit of the shining thrown in, stylistically speaking, think, kids meets Cocoon, think, Grumpy Old Men meets Emmanuel” he says.
“While it might not in any conventional sense be considered science fiction, Gerontophilia is at its heart a time travel movie. It takes as its subject a love affair of sorts between an eighty year old man and an eighteen year old boy: two old souls who, had they met each other somewhere else along the space/time continuum, might have become the perfect couple.”
Bruce LaBruce is a Toronto based filmmaker, writer, artist, and photographer who has written and directed seven feature films. You may have heard the buzz last year surrounding his controversial flick, LA Zombie, seen one of his early full length features, No Skin Off My Ass or dabbled in a bit of art/porn and let your eyes feast on Skin Flick.
Moving from micro budget into low budget, LaBruce needs your donations to complete Gerontophilia and release it into the world.
