Theory collides with comedy in HOOTERS, a behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of The Owls.
In The Owls, a collective very loosely bound by sexuality and gender sets out to make a seminal lesbian film in three weeks. HOOTERS director Albelo’s alias “La Chocha” tracks down members of the filmmaking collective in order to get the real scoop as the group works hard to finish the film.
As anyone who has been in a collective knows, creating a truly collaborative project is often a twisting road. HOOTERS shows that a daunting and difficult task can bring people together, change minds, and also create extremely compelling art.
The cast of The Owls is a who’s who of queer film: landmark director Cheryl Dunye (The Watermelon Woman and Stranger Inside), Lisa Gornick (Tick Tock Lullaby), Guinevere Turner and VS Brodie (Go Fish), Deak Evangenikos (Itty Bitty Titty Committee), Skyler Cooper (Elena Undone), and writer Sarah Schulman.
