ALASKA IS A DRAG

Alaska is a Drag

General Admission:  First come, First served seating

Shaz Bennett, 2016, USA, 84 min

Leo (Martin L. Washington) and Tristan (Maya Washington) are twins, best friends and each other’s lifeline in an otherwise dismal life in Alaska. He works in a fish cannery and dreams of being an “International Super Star” (said with arm raised and hip sashay). She is surviving cancer and is her brother’s “camp” coach and confidante. But don’t let Leo’s drag dreams fool you into thinking he is soft. He is fearless in the face of daily assaults from a misfit group of thugs at work. One such encounter introduces him to a handsome new guy, Declan (Matt Dallas) who agrees to be Leo’s sparring partner so he can fight in a boxing tournament to send a message and to earn a few bucks. But that is just a side gig. Leo’s true goal is to win his first drag contest, the same night as the boxing match. The Alaskan scenery is divine and the friendship of these three endearing characters is heart warming. Filmmaker Shaz Bennett’s first feature film explores the love/hate relationship of living where you don’t want to be and longing for the better place that you hope to God is out there. (SH)
