Ask Any Buddy (2019)

  • Experimental
  • 1h 18m

Irish Premiere

PLEASE NOTE: Ask Any Buddy contains scenes of an explicit sexual nature and is suitable for audiences of 18 years or over.

Made with the warmth of grainy film and disco, it pieces together the work of famous adult directors of the day, including William Higgins, Tom DeSimone and Joe Gage. Purchell pieces together fragments from 126 theatrical feature films, spanning the years 1968-1986, to create a cut-up of urban gay life through a particular viewpoint

Ask Any Buddy is a joyful homage to the radical act of being a happy and fulfilled homosexual, and to the gleeful smut-makers who captured the nightlife, the cruising, the baths. There are giggles to be had, as well as great extracts from Arthur J. Bressan’s documentary Gay USA. So get a few mates round, sit apart at a safe distance, and remember… it’s art!
