Sticks and Stones (2014) [15m 57s – Written and Directed by Silas Howard]
Sticks and Stones is an intimate documentary about a song, a street, and a diva. Bambi Lake, a notorious San Francisco transgender performer and entertainer, takes us on a stroll down Polk Street, sharing anecdotes and the history behind her song“Golden Age of Hustlers”, which was written about her time as a street hustler in the mid-’70s. She landed on Polk Street after a stint with theCockettes and prior to regular gigs at renowned ’80s/’90s punk venue, theMabuhey Gardens.
Hustler White (1996) [1h 19m– Written and Directed by Rick Castro, Bruce LaBruce]
In a plot reminiscent of Sunset Boulevard, Hustler White transposes the action from the silver screen’s old movie backlots to contemporary male prostitution and the porn industry. The film, which like all of LaBruce’s work is sexually explicit, includes a controversial amputee sexscene. Codirector Rick Castro cast real male hustlers and his former models, including Tony Ward, as amateur actors.
