Reno Dakota.

Directed by Reno Dakota

Reno Dakota’s cult classic documentary lovingly portrays his friend Jeffrey Strouth, a gay man living in central Ohio. Cruising and chain-smoking in the back of a 1957 Cadillac, Strouth’s bizarre true-life tales range from his queer suburban childhood to misadventures among the hookers and addicts who became his second family. An amazing portrait, alternately touching and hilarious, of survival and fabulousness.

35mm, color, 103 min.
