Leo & Nymphia Documentary - by Hsin-An Pan, Taiwan, Republic of China
This film focuses on Cao Liou, (Leo) a 25-year-old drag queen known as “Nymphia.” The explosive creative energy he delivers is stunning, but at the same time, he also displays his egotistical nature and wanton lifestyle. Director Pan Hsin-an is the same age as Liou (Leo). He peeps into Liou’s life through a camera lens, questioning and exploring. During the filming process, the two often fail to understand each other, and each has his doubts about the other. But in the end, at opposite ends of the scale, they find the same desires behind huge differences.
Inside the Beauty Bubble Documentary - by Cheryl Bookout, Joshua Tree, CA and Cheri Gaulke, LA, CA, US
“Inside the Beauty Bubble” is a documentary film about a renowned collector of hair artifacts fighting to keep his desert dreams alive. The Beauty Bubble Salon & Museum in Joshua Tree is the magical and kitsch-filled brainchild of Jeff Hafler.
The film covers a year in the life of Jeff and his roadside attraction as they face lockdowns, protests and massive societal change. It is a film about family, fabulousness and folk art, a film that reminds us it’s sometimes the strong people on the margins that hold a community together.
