Taxi Zum Klo is an experimental autobiography, a feature document of gay life in 1980s West Berlin. Frank, a public school teacher by day, trolls the toilets at night in search of tearoom trade. When he falls for Bernd, trouble ensues as Frank’s libidinal behavior conflicts with Bernd’s more traditional views on coupling. Still shocking in its frank portrayal of sexual subculture, Taxi was heralded as “the first masterpiece about the mainstream of male gay life” by the Village Voice.
Dirty Looks is a roaming screening series, a salon of influences, an open platform for inquiry, discussion and debate.
