Synopsis

Greyson's first fiction feature combines narratives, experimental, and documentary conventions, blending film, video, and computer paint box special effects to explore the urgent political issue of toilet sex. Six famous dead queer artists, including Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein and Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, are mysteriously summoned to Toronto in 1987. Their mission: to research the policing of washroom sex and propose solutions.
