Maggots and Men, Cary Cronenwett, 2009, 53 mins, 16mm/Super 8, USA

infuses the sailor genre not just with trans guys and genderqueers, but also with anarchist politics

25th March, 7pm, at CCA,, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD 0141 352 4900. Free but ticketed event.

Maggots and Men, an experimental historical narrative set in post-revolutionary Russia, re-tells the story of the 1921 uprising of the Kronstadt sailors with a subtext of gender anarchy. A thoughtful homage to Soviet silent era directors and artists of the Russian avant-garde, the film explores themes of re-invention, revolution, community, and corruption.
