Screening and Panel Discussion

♦ Abstract ♦

CCHU 9007 Sexuality and Gender: Diversity and Society in collaboration with The Hong Kong Lesbian Gay Film Festival Society proudly present an in-class screening and meet the director of Glitter and Doom.

♦ About the Film ♦

Embark on a whimsical and captivating journey through the vibrant world of GLITTER & DOOM, a boisterous musical extravaganza crafted around the timeless melodies of the Indigo Girls and directed by Tom Gustafson (HELLO AGAIN, HKLGFF 2017). Join Doom, a soulful musician, and Glitter, an adventurous circus performer, as their summer romance unfolds against a backdrop of campfires, heartfelt conversations, and sensational musical numbers. As they navigate the treacherous waters of the music industry and contend with their mothers’ (played by Ming-Na Wen and Missy Pyle) expectations, they must discover what truly ignites their souls and fuels their dreams. Director Tom Gustafson’s visually stunning production merges flamboyant performances with an all-star LGBTQ+ cast, including Lea DeLaria, Tig Notaro, and Drag Race’s Peppermint, culminating in a dazzling expression of love and self-discovery.
