Making Priscilla: The Hilarious Story Behind The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Author: Clark, Al Set In . . .
 Australia
Genre: Other
Time Frame: None
Published:
Description: The movie itself is outrageous enough: Two drag queens and a transsexual, hilariously and tragically at odds with their environment, their act on the road to Alice Springs, Australia, in a converted school bus. But producer Al Clark's epic journey through the obstacles of making The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, is just as entertaining and even wilder. From the launch at Cannes (involving a last-minute attempt at comic subversion by a parading drag queen) to the casting (which changes with each passing time zone as they cross three continents); from the location survey (suspiciously painless) to the shott (beset by mechanical failures and torrential rains); from the test screenings to a triumphant return to Cannes, Clark and writer/director Stephan Elliott encounter a succession of people and events that defy the imagination. If you are a fan of filmmaking in the raw, a devotee of drag queens in the flesh, or simply curious about how to make an impossible dream come true (complete with a deliriously happy ending), Making Priscilla will make your day. Includes color photographs.
