That Man: Peter Berlin

Directed by Jim Tushinski

Peter Berlin is a gay icon.

Peter Buriancame to the US as a young man and ended up in 70s San Francisco. As the gay clones began to take over the streets of mecca, he developed the Peter Berlin character. It consisted primarily of walking the streets alone in home styled clothes that would accentuate his natural physique.

He starred in two legendary porn flicks, That Boy and Nights in Black Leather. But he primarily became known due to his exhibitionism. He photographed himself as a queer adonis, and basically kept to himself.

Now in his 60s, he still looks great. He's still narcissistic and still alone. But his body of work is amazing.

Jim Tushinski directs with a loving touch, using lots of photos by Peter, and film footagte from the 70s and 80s. John Waters is interviewed, as are Rick Castro, Armistead Maupin, Wakefield Poole, Jack Wrangler and lots of other queer legends.

It's still screening, so check for listings on the official site.
