MAGGOTS AND MEN, an experimental historical narrative set in post-revolutionary Russia, re-tells the story of the 1921 uprising of the Kronstadt sailors with a subtext of gender anarchy. A thoughtful homage to Soviet silent-era directors and artists of the Russian avant-garde, the film explores themes of re-invention, revolution, community, and corruption.
“In drawing a parallel between the history of revolution and the free expression of gender, MAGGOTS AND MEN evokes the poignant sense that our present world is haunted by radical potentials that have yet to be fulfilled.” - Susan Stryker
