Program Notes

When an injured male leftist on the run discovers the remote stronghold of the Female Liberation Army — a radical feminist terrorist group whose mission is to usher in a female world order — one of the members takes pity on him and hides him in the basement. However, the man in the basement is just one of many secrets threatening to disrupt the FLA’s mission from within. Balancing sharp social commentary and salacious popcorn entertainment, iconic filmmaker Bruce LaBruce has created an experience that’s a blast to watch and just as much fun to dissect afterwards.
“Grade: A. A gift from the queer cinema goddesses.” – Indiewire
“A rude delight about a coven of feisty lesbian terrorists, The Misandrists is a cinematic Molotov cocktail mixing screwball comedy, hard-core sex, and radical politics to explosive effect. It’s also a total hoot.” – Artforum
“A camp and gloriously crass essay on gender politics, The Misandrists is just a bigot’s worst nightmare.” – i-D Magazine/Vice
