DVD: Taxi Zum Klo

First ever DVD release for early Eighties journey through Berlin’s gay scene. Explicit and uncut

'Taxi Zum Klo’: Bernd and Frank enjoy a night out at Berlin’s Queen’s Ball

Frank is a primary school teacher in Berlin. His pupils love him as he treats them as individuals rather than little pegs for fitting into holes. What they don’t know - and what Frank doesn’t advertise - is that he is gay. Their dictation homework is marked in the cubicle of a public toilet while Frank sits waiting to see what’ll pop through a glory hole. Taxi Zum Klo is explicit – extremely so – but it’s also a deadpan, matter-of-fact depiction of a carefree lifestyle. The subject of bans, seizures and cuts in the early Eighties, this is its first release on DVD. It’s also uncut.
