Hattie Goes Cruising
Konstantin Bock, USA, 18 mins, 2015
English W/ English subtitles
While rifling through his collection of dirty photos of horse-hung tricks, Hattie shares his vivid memories, insights, and practical advice for picking up guys, how to deal with difficult tricks and more. We also learn about the 35-year-long relationship between Hattie and his partner Allen, who never put the kibosh on Hattie's cruising habits. The film is both a brilliant look at a part of gay culture that's fast becoming extinct, and a portrait of a unique character who is as fascinating as he is endearing.
He studied applied film, theatre and fine arts at the University of Hildesheim, and Jewish studies and the history and culture of the Middle East at the Freie Universität Berlin. As a video designer he has created work for stage productions in Oldenburg, Pforzheim, Berlin and Helsinki. His film work includes commercials, music videos, short films and documentaries.
