|Venus Boyz, a new documentary|
The New Festival is proud to present the US premiere of Venus Boyz, a new documentary focusing on drag kings, female masculinity, and gender performance in New York City and London, featuring a star-studded cast of local celebrities including Drd Gerestant, Storme Webber, Diane Torr, and Mo Fischer, among others.
Director Gabriel Bauer follows a wide range of subjects, finding out about their personalities, the male characters they've created, and their perceptions of gender and performance. Why do these women perform as men? How does it feel taking on a male persona? Bauer also expands the scope of the documentary by talking to FTMs like Hans Scheirl and Svar Simpson, and intersexed persons like Del LaGrace Volcano, and explores their transformations through male hormones.
You won't want to miss Venus Boyz with special appearance and Q&A with local kings, including Drd Gerestant, Storme Webber, and Diane Torr.
