Mister WA

Short Cut from 'Children of the Cockettes'

467 views 11 months ago
This organically-developed documentary investigates the current resurgence of glam gender performances and theater of the ridiculous in contemporary San Francisco. Through the lens of The Cockettes' heritage, Mister WA explores the free-spirited and non-conformist performance torches carried by the likes of Thrillpeddlers, Trannyshack, Peaches Christ and Burning Man. The free-form documentary integrates The Cockettes' esthetics down to its narrative as it weaves a cinematic quilt of queer art, performance, LGBT community, music and glamor unique to San Francisco. This project feeds off of hundreds of hours of video footage gathered in service to local performance community and presents a "Who's Who" of interconnected Bay area culture vignettes.
