Underground queer film legend Bruce LaBruce (The Raspberry Reich, Hustler White, Gerontophilia) makes an explosive return in a story of a dissident lesbian feminist cult hiding out in the heart of “Germwomany”. The group, which calls itself the Female Liberation Army, is led by Big Mother, an influential leader who publicly pretends to be the headmistress of a convent school for abused and delinquent girls. The FLA indoctrinates its young recruits to take up the struggle of freeing all female people through a mix of revolutionary porn-making, songs about taking down the patriarchy, and even a sneaky dancing nun. But does the FLA’s brand of radical feminism hide some darker and more exclusionary beliefs?
“Anyone who ever dreamed of joining a dissident lesbian cult has no choice but to accept The Misandrists as LaBruce’s personal gift.” – IndieWire
