Bruce LaBruce (born Justin Stewart; January 3, 1964) is a Canadian writer, filmmaker, photographer and underground gay porn director based in Toronto, Ontario. His films explore themes of sexual and interpersonal transgression against cultural norms, frequently blending the artistic and production techniques of independent film with gay pornography.

Biography

LaBruce was born in Tiverton, Ontario. He studied film at York University in Toronto and wrote for Cineaction magazine, curated by Robin Wood, his teacher.

He first gained public attention with the publication of the queer punk zine J.D.s, which he co-edited with G.B. Jones. He currently writes and photographs for a variety of publications including Vice, Nerve.com and BlackBook magazine, and has also previously been a columnist for the Canadian music magazine Exclaim! and Toronto's eye weekly, as well as a contributing editor and photographer for New York's index magazine. He has also been published in Toronto Life, the National Post and The Guardian.

His filmmaking style is marked by a blend of explicitly pornographic depictions of sex with more conventional narrative and filmmaking techniques, as well as an interest in extreme topics which mainstream audiences might dismiss as shocking or disturbing taboos. For instance, his films have depicted scenes of sexual fetish and paraphilia, BDSM, gang rape, racially-motivated violence, amputee fetishism, male and female prostitution, and zombie and vampire sexuality. He has frequently been identified with the subversive New Queer Cinema movement that emerged in the 1990s, although at the height of that movement's prominence he rejected the association on the grounds that he felt more personally aligned with the queercore movement.

His movie, Otto, or, Up With Dead People debuted at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. L.A. Zombie was banned from the Melbourne International Film Festival in 2010 because, in the opinion of Australian censors, it would have been refused classification. However, the film was subsequently able to screen at OutTakes, a New Zealand lesbian and gay international film festival, in May 2011.

In March 2011, LaBruce directed a performance of Arnold Schoenberg's opera Pierrot Lunaire at the Hebbel am Ufer Theatre in Berlin. This iteration of the opera included gender diversity, castration scenes and dildos, as well as a female to male transgender Pierrot.

Unlike most of LaBruce's earlier films, the forthcoming Gerontophilia is not sexually explicit, instead representing an attempt on his part to make a film more palatable to a mainstream audience. The film will, however, retain LaBruce's traditional interest in exploring sexual taboos, dramatizing an intergenerational relationship between a young man and a senior citizen.

Plongée dans l’univers déjanté du queercore, un mouvement punk qui dans les années 1980 et 1990 a renversé les codes de genre. À son origine, les Canadiens Bruce LaBruce et G. B. Jones, respectivement gay et lesbienne... Dans les années 1980 et 1990, un mouvement underground venu d’Amérique du Nord plonge dans tous les excès : le queercore. Avec ses fanzines, ses spectacles punk déglingués et ses pornos expérimentaux, ce mouvement plein d’humour et d’irrévérence centré sur l’identité queer a dessiné une troisième voie entre un mouvement LGBT plutôt sage et une scène punk largement masculine, hétéro, voire aux tendances homophobes. À son origine, les Canadiens Bruce LaBruce et G. B. Jones, respectivement gay et lesbienne. Le premier est aujourd’hui un artiste reconnu, à qui le MoMA a consacré une rétrospective en 2015.

The 60-minutes documentary follows Sagat's working career with a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the cult actor's performances, and gives plenty of testimonials about Sagat's impact. Most of the shooting was done in Cognac, Paris and San Francisco. The film contains many quotations from other notables from the industry including Chi Chi LaRue who compares Sagat with the pop diva Madonna, and porn filmmaker Bruce LaBruce who calls Sagat "the Marilyn Monroe of gay porn -- Marilyn had her breasts, François has the ass".

An extraterrestrial zombie (who may just be a schizophrenic vagrant, and whose appearance constantly shifts between that of a corpse, a tusked beast with irregular genitals, and a normal man) emerges from the sea, and begins making its way to Los Angeles. A motorist notices the zombie walking along a deserted road, picks it up, and dies in an accident moments later. The zombie recovers from the crash, and reanimates the driver by penetrating a wound in the man's chest with its monstrous penis. The ghouls have sex, which ends with the first zombie ejaculating black semen, and stumbling away as the motorist sits among the wreckage of his vehicle, in awe of what had just transpired.
