West Coast Premiere of Katherine Fairfax Wright’s documentary, part of the Outfest
Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival.
Last year Todrick Hall, the singer, dancer, actor, director, American Idol sensation, and YouTube superstar unveiled his biggest project yet: The Wizard Of Oz—inspired musical Straight Outta Oz.
Influenced largely by his small-town Texas upbringing and his close relationship with his conservative Christian mother, Hall brings this deeply personal yet ambitious project to fruition over the course of this up-close-and-personal documentary.
Directed and edited with an intimate, you-are-there immediacy by Katherine Fairfax Wright (Call Me Kuchu, Imperial Dreams), Behind The Curtain shows Hall and his team displaying passion that shines through every frame.
This special centerpiece, which wowed audiences at SXSW, is a portrait of an artist reconciling his small-town past with his widescreen future. The film’s uplifting conclusion proves beyond a doubt that this impressive young man behind the curtain is well worth paying attention to.
The screening takes place on Thursday, July 13 at 8pm at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel.
