South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

Title: Circuit
Director: Dirk Schafer
Specs: USA 2001 35mm 120min



Out In Africa Film Festival
Pecs, poppers and parties � particularly the flesh pits of the famed Circuit raves � is the subject matter of Dirk Shafer�s second film, and which proved to be one of the most popular films when it screened at OIA last year.

John�s a cop, persecuted in his small hometown for being gay, he moves to L.A at the invitation of his cousin Tad who, incidentally, is making a documentary about the circus that is the Circuit. John, literally sucked into the world of techno, drugs, penile injections (ouch!) and glistening flesh, hangs with hustler Hector and learns, turns, a trick or two.

Shafer cleverly uses the film within a film to handle the subplots, commenting on a life-style that has the depth of a spinning mirror ball.

Dirk Shafer is a guest of the Festival.
