Director Brett Hanover – 2017 USA 86 min World Premiere – Hybrid Documentary/ LGBT/Punk/Furries


Furries, filmmakers, kinksters, survivors. Ruckus is a fictionalized personal account of coming of age in Memphis at the turn of the century. This feature-length video project is based on work begun in collaboration with furry artist Rukus, that was left unfinished after his death in 2008

A hybrid of documentary and fiction, Rukus is a queer coming-of-age story set in the liminal spaces of furry conventions, southern punk houses, and virtual worlds. Rukus is a 20-year-old furry artist, living with his boyfriend Sable in the suburbs of Orlando, Florida. In his sketchbooks, Rukus is constructing an imaginary universe—a sprawling graphic novel in which painful childhood memories are restaged as an epic fantasy. He crosses paths with Brett, a 16-year-old filmmaker with OCD, who is working on a documentary about kinky subcultures in spite of his own anxiety. After an interview leads to an online friendship, their lives entwine in ways that push them into strange, unexplored territories.

Brett Hanover was last at IndieFest in 2008 with the excellent Bunnyland.- Jennifer Junkyard Morris
