4 p.m. My Hustler, 1965, 16mm, 67 min
This series of experimental films flouted widespread taboos around sexuality and queer life outside the underground world of places like Warhol’s Factory. Camp depicts a variety show of songs, poems, and dances featuring drag performer (and Warhol film regular) Mario Montez, dancer Paul Swan, and others. Vinyl explores sadomasochism in scenarios tenuously based on Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange (preceding Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 feature). Set on Fire Island, My Hustler depicts competition over the affections of a young male hustler among a straight woman, a former male hustler, and the man who hired him in the first place.
