Drag film Cherry Pop stormed into pride week and made its New York premiere at OutCinema, a celebration of LGBTQ pride and community on film. Produced by NYC Pride with NewFest and the SVA Theatre, the night featured a specially curated screening followed by a talkback and open bar after-party. Gay social networking app Hornet also sponsored, giving out premium memberships to attendees.
“A bawdy, uproarious comedy about a wild night in a down-and-out drag club,” Cherry Popfeatures performances by Bob The Drag Queen, Detox, Tempest DuJour and Latrice Royale. Directed by Assaad Yacoub, the film follows a misfit troupe of drag performers backstage at a failing drag club.
“It was originally a short film five years ago,” director Assaad Yacoub tells us on the red carpet. “I was a student doing my undergrad thesis and I never had seen drag queens before. I knew I needed to put this on film and that I needed to show behind-the-scenes at a show. So I decided to make it into a short film. Bob was originally in that short. After we did the festival run with the short, we made it into a feature.”
Cherry Pop! is a crazy night in the life of a small local bar’s drag show. It’s about a newcomer struggling with being the outcast on his first night. And a legend coming to terms with life after her last night in drag. And it’s about a bunch of other back-stabbing queens with their own problems who just plain can’t stand each other. Even the stories of some of the patrons play a part in the chaos. Cherry Pop is a real-time roller coaster ride where you better be strapped up, tucked in, and ready to go!
When Zaza, headliner of a weekly drag show, ‘CHERRY POP’, refuses to come out of her dressing room, all hell breaks loose backstage. A young newcomer, The Cherry, is hiding a huge secret from the girls while getting ready for his debut performance.
