TRIXIE MATTEL: MOVING PARTS

Directed by Nicholas Zeig-Owens

Packed with backstage footage, revealing confessionals, and appearances from a host of beloved drag entertainers, this charming film captures the momentous rise of RuPaul’s Drag Race breakout queen Trixie Mattel. As the beloved drag persona of Milwaukee-raised Brian Firkus, Trixie does it all: headlining a live tour in Great Britain while filming Drag Race All-Stars, managing personal projects, family issues, and recording a new album. Director Nick Zeig-Owens artfully synthesizes all of Trixie’s fabulous endeavors and conflicting feelings into a highly charged film experience. The documentary is a raw and deeply personal portrait of the pitfalls of success and the endless churn of being a professional performer.
