CGiii Comment

It's a lovely wee film...brimming with talent.

It effortlessly glides from comedy into drama and back again.

If only the final scene could have been the biggest production number ever...but, hey, it's a short film with a limited budget...we can but imagine!


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

Ari performs as a Jewish Drag King, much to the confusion of their family. Idolising real-life hero, Pepi Littman, who carved out a space for Drag Kings over 100 years ago, they use this history to open up a space for acceptance in the present.
