HUSTLER WHITE

by Bruce LaBruce

Canada, 1996, 80 min , colour

Moni, a streetwise hustler, is pursued by Jurgen, a grumpy foreigner in LA. When Monti inadvertantly commits a hit-and-run, and Jurgen stumbles upon the bloody T-shirt which Monti used to wipe off his car. Jurgen tries to track Monti down, who has returned to his typical routine of sordid encounters with other hustlers, pornographers and an assortment of never-do-wells. A utopian fantasy, not to be missed.
