THIRD ANTENNA: A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE RADICAL NATURE OF DRAG (2001)
In 2001 with Drag Attack Productions I Co-directed and produced a feature length movie “Third Antenna: A documentary about the radical nature of drag”. Third Antenna features interviews and performance footage by drag queens, drag kings and gender performers of all varieties across the United States and parts of Canada. We particularly focused on documenting the perspectives of performers on the ‘fringe’ of drag culture. The soundtrack for Third Antenna features music by 1774 and Tracy + The Plastics.
