Ladies, please

Dir: Andrew Saw (Australia, 1995, video, 55 min., US Premiere)

With each new multi-million dollar cross-dressing spectacle from Hollywood, it's easy to forget drag's humble beginnings - a little rouge, a bit of mascara, and a dependable sewing machine. To help remind you, this utterly fun documentary chronicles the real-life story of the three "ladies" (Cindy Pastel, Styrkermeyer and Lady Bump) who inspired the hit film "Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert". And these real Australian ladies do so much more than their filmic counterparts, whether it be picking up waiters at an outdoor, full-costume drag tea, or doing a drag cover of Laurie Anderson, or holding a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival (with Cindy Pastel's 12-year-old son in tow).
