Synopsis: Ookie Cookie is an uber-campy, sexy, and hallucinogenic glitterdrag inspired tribute to the work of the late NYC underground 80s gay video artist Tom Rubnitz, specifically "Pickle Surprise". Starring legendary Los Angeles drag artist Jackie Beat as Lady Bunny and LA artist Barry Morse as Pickle. It also stars notable Los Angeles performers including Willam Belli and Jackie Beat playing gay icons RuPaul and Lahoma Van Zandt.
Filmmaker Statement Barry Morse I discovered the work of cult video artist Tom Rubnitz, who died of AIDS in 1992, and was immediately hypnotized. Rubnitz made cult videos in NYC in the 80's and 90's using club kids and legendary drag queens including Rupaul and Lady Bunny. OOKIE COOKIE is my homage to Rubnitz, notably PICKLE SURPRISE and STRAWBERRY SHORTCUT. I was inspired to continue his queer camp tradition by using his wacky scenarios, drag queens, and handmade sets, but adds my own unique take on his work.
