Captain Faggotron Saves the Universe

September 4, 2023 @ 21:30 23:00

Captain Faggotron Saves the Universe, released in 2023, is already a shamelessly camp classic. It came into existence as a direct response to contemporary society and the worrying swing of the world’s political pendulum to the right: the 2016 Orlando, Florida shooting, the persecution of homosexuality in Chechnya, Russia, the election of Donald Trump in the USA and the violence that follows gay and queer people of all genders throughout their lives.

According to the filmmakers, “the film follows a tradition deeply rooted in gay and queer history and our ability to survive. Confronting ‘straight’ and heteronormative structures, camp exposes absurdities of the mainstream in a way that allows us to laugh. Humor is a weapon, and camp a tool of joyful resistance.”

Rosa Oomen, QFFU



A young priest is intent on denying his homosexuality, but he’s not doing a very good job. Meanwhile, his alien ex-lover is plotting to turn Earth into a homosexual planet during a cosmic event and Captain Faggotron is caught in the middle. Clashing ideologies culminate in an orgy of gay demons and a love that no longer has to hide.
