Join film curator Greg Hamilton for an evening with filmmaker David
Weissman and his critically acclaimed 2002 documentary THE COCKETTES!
COCKETTES is an engaging tribute to a theatrical troupe that was the
sensation of the late 1960s and early 1970s hippie movement in San
Francisco. They were, as John Waters describes them, "hippie acid freak
drag queens," and this sympathetic, straight-ahead look at "people who
were allowed to live at the end of their imagination" is a charming and
nostalgic revisiting of a lost corner of recent cultural history. This
comprehensive and charming film not only recalls those days exactly, it
also manages the wonderful trick of taking us back there along with it."
