Join us at 6pm for a special RED CARPET RECEPTION before the Festival Premiere of HURRICANE BIANCA, with sickeningly fierce star Bianca Del Rio and director Matt Kugelman in person! Enjoy hors d'oeuvres from Grassroots and grab a few drinks from the bar in the Music Box Lounge before the film starts (7:30pm showtime) and help us kick off Reeling 2016 in style!
Red-hot standup comedian Roy Haylock and his alter ego, the outrageous drag diva Bianca Del Rio, star in this hilarious dragtastic revenge comedy from Columbia College graduate writer-director Matt Kugelman. When demure Richard gets hounded out of his teaching job in a small Texas town for being gay, his other half, the dragtastic diva Bianca Del Rio exacts a hilarious revenge. Kugelman’s directorial debut, a laugh out loud John Waters/TOOTSIE hybrid, offers a divine showcase for Haylock’s massive talents. Haylock’s cyclonic life force Bianca Del Rio, season six champion of RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE, is joined onscreen by a host of queer icons: Alan Cumming, Margaret Cho, Bianca Leigh, and none other than RuPaul himself.
