Our Gay Brothers  (1993) 9 min, 16mm
A funny and contentious film about the joy of difference! Three gay men discuss the challenges and mysteries of the female geography, as the filmmaker makes counterpoint with a series of images from archival and educational movies.

The film was made with three of my roommates, who spoke with alarming candor; in the end, the film is about acknowledging difference, and finding bonds anyway.

"Our Gay Brothers is bound to ruffle a few feathers. The voice-overs of a gaggle of gay guys discussing what they like and dislike about women's bodies is punctuated by images of early hard-core porn and vulva metaphors drawn from a variety of everyday objects. ... Snider's film is provocative and convincing. It's whiplash montage."-Warren Sonbert, SF Sentinel
