FUDLIAKS! Tear the Sexes Apart

FUDLIAKS! Tear the Sexes Apart

Jasmin Hagendorfer / Austria / 2021 / 13 min

German title: FUDLIAKS! Zerfetzt die Geschlechter!

This hyper-intersectional film is an amalgam of sci-fi creature-flick, campy music video, grotesque comedy, agitprop flick against heterocentric research as well as pornographic subversive statement. “FUDLIAKS! Tear the sexes apart!” is set in an undefined present, in a mysterious laboratory: the Institute for Gender Normalization. The research subject of this neo-conservative think tank: the scientific underpinnings of conventional heteronormative bodies and biologically binary genders. But a new research series turns all that on its head!
