Synopsis

DIY is a serious and irreverent film framed by the search of contemporary gay artist, Michael Atavar, for clues to his culture and his past. Through the location of a disused public toilet and notorious cottage in Islington, a cottage once frequented by playwright Joe Orton and his lover Kenneth Halliwell, the film explores changes in Britain and changes in gay life.
