TRANSFORMISTAS

Transformistas_promo-still-2

Chad Hahne, 2020, Cuba 84 min.

Filmed covertly without permission from the Cuban government, this intimately epic documentary fluctuates between the past and the present, contrasting the struggles that different generations of drag queens have faced in their country. From the early 1990’s when they faced violent persecution from a government that considered them a product of capitalism — to the present day when there is more state-support but also a treacherous rivalry fueled by the Miss Cuba competition. Samantha, Cynthia, Omega, and Blaccucino are just some of the colorful characters that play a part in this awe-inspiring story of sacrifice, resilience and commitment to the art form of drag.
