Synopsis

An intertextual essay clashing gay porn, Mexican pop songs; imperialist fiction (Zoltan Korda’s 1942 Technicolor epic The Jungle Book), and Toronto landscapes. While a TV journalist examines the contradictory homoeroticism and imperialism of a Rudyard Kipling film adaptation, her husband undergoes his own coming-out narrative and confronts the politics and fantasy of washroom sex.
