Georden West
Experimental : 72' / Gentrification, Performance, Community, Drag

A raucous work of queer fantasy and history, Playland conjures a time-bending night in Boston’s oldest and most notorious gay bar. With an eclectic ensemble of queer performers, including drag icon Lady Bunny and Pose’s Danielle Cooper, the film is transdisciplinary in every sense of the word: music, dance, archival footage, tableaux, opera, and performance art are layered into an ethereal piece subverting all boundaries.
