Otto, or Up with Dead People
2007. Germany/Canada. Directed by Bruce LaBruce. With Jey Crisfar, Katharina Klewinghaus, Gio Black Peter, Susanne Sachsse. MoMA welcomes Halloween with the advance premiere of LaBruce's latest foray into exuberant gender- and genre-bending. Otto, suddenly undead, finds himself on the "highway of life" to Berlin, where he is discovered by an independent filmmaker who enlists her brother and her girlfriend to make an "epic political-porno-zombie" movie. Courtesy Strand Releasing. 95 min.
Bruce LaBruce, whose lively, gay-themed feature narratives like No Skin Off My Ass (1992), Hustler White (1996), and The Raspberry Reich (2004) helped establish and affirm the punk Homocore movement, makes films with an aggressively light touch. Based in Toronto and a co-creator of the queer zine J.D.s, LaBruce brings an energetically cartoonish vision to his films, transforming their radicalism into provocative entertainment.
