'Cruising in High Heels' ist ein film über 2 apokalyptische Sissies zwischen Bogotá, Berlin und Cartagena. Jair ist Tänzer, Sion(e) Filmemacher. Was als Dokumentarfilm über einen Tänzer beginnt, verwandelt sich langsam in ein Spiel mit der Kamera. Und in eine Suche nach kultureller, sexueller und künstlerischer Identität.

Cruising in High Heels' is a film about two apocalyptic sissies between Bogota, Berlin and Cartagena. One is a dancer, the other a Filmmaker. What starts as a documentary about a dancer, transforms slowly into a performance for film. The performances they create play with the in-between, male female, and the appropriation of spaces and expectations projected onto them. Jair says to Simon: "Look, my friend Victoria Beckham, when she has the flu, she puts on high heels, puts on make-up, makes herself look amazing and the flu goes away. This is achieving such self-knowledge that a flu goes away with lipstick and high heels."
