Canadian filmmaker Bruce LaBruce has launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance production and post-production costs of his new film “Misandrists”, starring Susanne Sachsse, Viva Ruiz, Caprice Crawford, and the brilliant Kembra Pfahler, the leading figure in New York’s performance art scene in the 1980s and ’90s and co-creator and lead of the burlesque freak-show-punk-rock band, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black.
The Misandrists tells the story of a secret cell of feminist terrorists planning to liberate women, overthrow the patriarchy, and usher in a new female world order. The group which is led by Big Mother operates a school for wayward girls in the countryside as a front for a radical terroristic cell. When a young man, a radical leftist, who is running from the police, happens upon this remote female stronghold, one of the girls takes pity on him and hides him in the basement. His presence eventually disrupts the household and reveals a number of unexpected secrets, as the film moves towards its climax: the revelation of a new style of lesbian porn that is to be used as both propaganda tool and calling card for their new brand of female revolution.
