Synopsis

In Black and White (Vancouver, 1979, 10), one of the handful of Canadian queer film masterpieces of the 1970s, is an experimental short from the SFU film programme, a manifesto of liberation politics, postmodern aesthetics, and defiant erotics. Narratively speaking, two young men, one married and the other an “out” seventies clone, meet in a public toilet and have hot sex, but they’re caught through video surveillance. McGarry stepped into the clone role when his actor for this student production didn’t show, and his straight cameraman played the married hottie with real conviction
