A spoof of a transgressive short film by Usama Alshaibi called “Slaughtered Pigtails” in which a woman is hunted down and brutally murdered. In this version, the hunter is a drag queen, and the victim is just a really bad actress. Starring Silky Jumbo and Shishaldin.
I ran into Usama at the rally. Usama is an acclaimed filmmaker and his is also a radio host at the new Chicago Public Radio Station vocalo.org. He also used to work for Studs Terkel as his archivist and was even the subject of a chapter of one of Studs’ recent books.
Usama’s film Nice Bombs will be on The Sundance Channel later this month! Visit DanceHabibi for more info.
