Professor James Duesing‘s film “Tugging the Worm” was screens as part of “The History of Cruising” screening during the Cinema Queer International Film Festival in Stockholm, Sweden on September 27. “Tugging the Worm” is an allegorical film that takes place in a utopian society which has faced the prospect that complete annihilation is an ever present possibility.

“The History of Cruising” is presented in collaboration with the ArkDes exhibition “Cruising Pavilion: Architecture, gay sex and cruising culture.” Two specially curated short film programs will be shown: one in the museum’s garden and one in a nearby alley. In addition, a panel discussion about cruising as resistance will be held and also a guided tour of the exhibition.
