In collaboration with Melbourne Queer Film Festival, Barefoot Cinema presents Stephan Elliot’s Oscar-winning Australian film icon Priscilla Queen Of The Desert.

Two drag queens and a trans woman leave Sydney in a bus called “Priscilla”, and travel across Australia to put on a show at a resort in the middle of the country. Along the way, they break down, paint the bus lavender, dress up a lot, perform where they shouldn’t and encounter hilarity, hostility and incomprehension. This cult classic is a road movie musical about a collision between three people in the wrong costumes and an environment that does not want them.
