PriscillaTo open the new season of Cinema Thursday, we will first screen a teaser reel of what you can expect to see at the upcoming Durban International Film Festival. Approx 30 min.

Then on to the main feature... Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

In this this camp cult classic, two drag-queens and a transexual get a gig at a resort in Alice Springs, a resort town in the remote Australian desert. They head west from Sydney aboard their lavender bus, Priscilla. Unpredictable, adventurous and entertaining, is a unique work entirely of its own creation, Prisicilla is like a billowing silk scarf out of a brazen blowhole in the desert. Despite its surface sheen of flippancy and wisecracking 'tarts', Priscilla is a warm and human story - and as writer/director Steph Elliott confesses, not at all what he intended, but the characters took charge and tamed what was going to be an in-your face, low budget shocker, into something greater than the sum of its parts.
