From Mattioli Productions and director George Hellings, the new short documentary A Queer City focuses on three young drag artists as they navigate the rising drag scene in Norwich, a place where their actions appear to be going unnoticed by the rest of the world.
The film’s colorful subjects open up about what their drag means to them and how, by finding a welcoming group of people in Norwich with similar attitudes and camp sensibilities, they have been able to express their queerness and identity freely through performance and visual artistry. Despite sometimes finding it difficult to find their way as marginalized individuals, they have hopes for a future they plan on carving themselves as a close-knit new wave of creatives.
