Cruising in High Heels

Cruising in High Heels

documentary film by Simon Paetau, 48 min, Germany 2015

'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, transforms slowly into a performance for film. The performances they create play with the in-between, male female, and the appropriation of spaces and expectations projected onto them. Jair says to Simon: "Look, my friend Victoria Beckham, when she has the flu, she puts on high heels, puts on make-up, makes herself look amazing and the flu goes away. This is achieving such self-knowledge that a flu goes away with lipstick and high heels."
