Cruising in High Heels

Hybrid-Documentary, 48 Min, Germany, 2015
a film in-between Simon Paetau & Jair Luna

Cruising in High Heels is a film about two apocalyptic sissies between Bogota, Berlin and Cartagena.
One is a dancer, the other a filmmaker. What starts as a documentary about a dancer, melts slowly into a performativ film. They both transform what they live together into movement. The performances they create play with the in-between, male female, and the appropriation of spaces and expectations projected onto them. Jair says ” I didn’t came here to talk about if I am latin, gay or not gay. In reality I came here just to be and to be here breathing.”
