Maggots And Men
DVD, film, 55 mins.
English and Russian (with English subtitles)
An experimental historical narrative set in a mythologized, post-revolutionary Russia that re-imagines the 1921 uprising of the Kronstadt sailors with a twist of gender anarchy. Agit-prop theatre group the Blue Blouses guides us through the story which is narrated through fictional letters written by Stepan Petrichenko, leader of the provisional Revolutionary Committee.
"In drawing a parallel between the history of revolution and the free expression of gender, Maggots and Men evokes the poignant sense that our present world is haunted by radical potentials that have yet to be fulfilled"- Susan Stryker
