Frameline44 –the San Francisco-based queer media arts foundation, is letting us celebrate with Shit & Chamnpagne.
The festival is holding a drive-in screening of the new slapstick comedy Sh*t & Champagne which is a take-off on 70s exploitation movies. The plot goes like this;
After her fiancé, Rod and her half-sister Brandy, the world renowned calf model, are both brutally murdered, Champagne Horowitz Jones Dickerson White, a divorcee and exotic dancer from the wrong side of the tracks, uses ‘all the right moves’ to single-handedly take on the largest sex, drug and back to school clothing ring in the country, Mal-Wart.
But when her best friend becomes addicted to booty bumps and is forced to work as a Mal-Wart brand discount prostitute, Champagne has no other choice than to go undercover and infiltrate the corrupt organization. Using an arsenal of disguises, a plethora of kung-fu moves and a cornucopia of one-liners, Champagne dances her way down the fast and furious road to revenge.
Directed by and starring Darcy Drollinger, Sh*t & Champagne plays the Frameline44 centerpiece drive-in on September 17.
