A tale of lipstick and counterculture, Colin Rothbart’s debut documentary is a thrilling, hilarious and moving portrait of East London’s alternative drag scene, filmed over five years. Not just a whirlwind of larger than life characters, Dressed As A Girl also showcases the real people behind the flamboyant stage personas, to universally resonant effect.
Born and bred in East London, it is only natural Dressed as a Girl should have an event screening atop of Dalston for it's inclusion in 15th East End Film Festival this July.
As part of the documentary competition, Dressed as a Girl will have a rooftop screening atop of Dalston Roof Park. The night promises to be the hot ticket of the festival with performances from stars of the film plus a special short film screening of Drag is my Ecstacy by director Joseph Wilson.
