The Cockettes (2002), directed by Bill Weber, David Weissman

Director Bill Weber and David Weissman’s exuberant documentary looks back at the groundbreaking psychedelic drag performance troupe The Cockettes, from their formation amid San Francisco’s commune scene in 1969 to their infamous off-Broadway debut in 1971, and beyond. Named the best non-fiction film of 2002 by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, The Cockettes blends archival footage and interviews to conjure the heady spirit of cultural, sexual and personal liberation that informed the group and which it, in turn, inspired.

35mm, color, 100 min.

IN PERSON: Sebastian, Bill Weber, David Weissman

FREE Admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.
