David Weissman's influential documentary chronicles The Cockettes, a
flamboyant ensemble of hippies (women, gay men, and babies) who decked
themselves out in gender-bending drag and tons of glitter for a series
of legendary midnight musicals in 1960s and 70s San Francisco. Their
all singing, all dancing extravaganzas featured elaborate costumes,
rebellious sexuality, and exuberant chaos.

David Weissman, producer/ co-director - is a multi-award winning
independent filmmaker whose films have been broadcast domestically and
internationally, and have been featured at countless film festivals.
David now lives in Portland and is the co-producer of the QDoc
Portland Queer Documentary Film Festival.

Women's Studies
