Kipling Meets the Cowboys
1985, 21:56 minutes, colour, English
Kipling is touring North America, hoping to recruit boy scouts, and he is trailed undercover by a CIA-TV reporter. Meanwhile, a travel agent, watching a film during his lunchbreak, meets Kipling - all three are arrested and the journalist is fired. Kipling Meets the Cowboys traces the decline of British imperialism and the rise of its American counterpart in relation to the contradictory impact of each on contemporary social and sexual values. The prevalence of cowboy fantasies in gay sexual culture is traced back to its roots.
