Mister Wa’s Film Adventures: “Children of the Cockettes”

Through the lens of The Cockettes’ heritage, Mister WA explores the free-spirited and non-conformist performance torches carried by the likes of Thrillpeddlers, Trannyhack and Peaches Christ. This organically-developed documentary investigates the current resurgence of glam gender performances and theater of the ridiculous in contemporary San Francisco. The free-form documentary integrates The Cockettes’ esthetics down to its narrative as it weaves a cinematic quilt of queer art, performance, LGBT community, music and glamor unique to San Francisco. This project feeds off of hundreds of hours of video footage gathered in service to local performance community and presents a “Who’s Who” of interconnected Bay area culture vignettes.
