Description

Join us for a special screening of Reem Morsi’s “Queen Tut” featuring a live Q&A from 2024 Canadian Screen Awards nominee Alexandra Billings (“Transparent”, “Never Have I Ever”)!

 

Taking place in the Toronto queer nightlife scene, we follow Egyptian immigrant Nabil (Ryan Ali) and trans drag mother Malibu (Alexandra Billings), as they find solace in each other’s friendship. As Malibu teaches Nabil about drag and Malibu struggles to save their queer bar, they realise that their efforts to cling to the past are holding them back from manifesting the legacy their loved ones would have wanted for them.

 

“The “Queer Revolutionary Drag Dramedy” Queen Tut shot in Toronto’s Gay Village is a heartwarming, inspiring look at connection, family, and change.” - Anne Brodie, What She Said
