Taxi Zum Klo: 30th Anniversary Edition

Three decades after it first hit cinemas and shocked mainstream audiences, Frank Ripploh’s groundbreaking debut feature returns in this digitally remastered director’s cut.Hailed as one of the defining forces behind the queer cinema genre, the film is now, for the first time, widely available on home video and complete with rarely-seen special features.

Ripploh’s semi-autobiographical snapshot of the life of a gay schoolteacher captures an unyielding vision of gay culture in 1981 West Berlin.Through his gritty portrayal of a dual lifestyle – one that combines daily lesson plans and nightly hookups in public bathrooms – Ripploh laid bare the dark secrets of the closeted lifestyle and contributed to the birth of a new genre.Taxi zum Klo is a pivotal piece of cinematic history that shows audiences how far a film can go and how much the modern gay mainstream has evolved.
