    A short film about cruising as an Indigenous Queer. This short is part of "Hanky Code: The Movie" and is among a collection of shorts that explore the different codes inherent in the hanky code. "Indigenous Luv" is an attempt to create a space for Indigenous Queer studies and in its simplicity is also a critique of Western Homo/Queer culture. It asks the viewer to consider the romanticized body of Indigenous peoples and queers alike in order to strive toward an imagined space where Queer phantasies of sex and gender identity/non-identity are either deconstructed, appropriated, or decolonized. The concept of the film is inspired by the presence of multi-gendered/omnisexual/complex Indigenous societies, romanticized representations of landscape and sexual desire, the male on male gaze, and Helium's 1995 video for "Honeycomb", directed by Brett Vapnek. About "Hanky Code: The Movie": Before Internet dating and hookup apps, The Handkerchief code was largely used by gay men in the 1970’s to distinguish sexual preferences and fetishes in gay clubs and on the streets of places like San Francisco and New York. In Hanky Code: The Movie, Periwinkle Cinema, San Francisco’s queer experimental film collective brings Queer and Trans* filmmakers across a spectrum of genres, styles, genders, and locations to dissect the code in this epic anthology feature of more than 20 short films! Each filmmaker or filmmaking team tells a story of a different color/fetish of the code. Films range from narrative to experimental to erotic and animated, with many films redefining the traditional code with colors, patterns, and fetishes up to creative interpretation of the artist. ~ Organized by Gentry McShane with Lisa Ganser & Lorin Murphy!
