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

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.
