Synopsis
Cruising in High Heels' is a film about two apocalyptic sissies between Bogota, Berlin and Cartagena. One is a dancer, the other a filmmaker. What starts as a documentary about a dancer, melts slowly into a performativ film. It shows, how they both transform what they live together, into movement. The performances they create play with the in-between, male female, and the appropriation of spaces and expectations projected onto them. Jair says "I didn't came here to talk about if I am latin, gay or not gay. In reality I came here just to be and to be here breathing."
