The Cockettes

Join film curator Greg Hamilton for an evening with filmmaker David Weissman and his critically acclaimed 2002 documentary THE COCKETTES!

THE 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." - Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
