TRIXIE MATTEL: MOVING PARTS
Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts captures the momentous rise of RuPaul’s Drag Race breakout queen Trixie. As the charming 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. An unexpected fallout with close friend and web series co-star Katya Zamolodchikova injects a bittersweet undercurrent to Trixie’s professional and personal success. Behind the scenes, Firkus reflects on the joys and challenges of being Trixie.
Director Nick Zeig-Owens artfully synthesize all of Trixie’s fabulous projects and conflicting feelings into a highly charged film experience. With humor and catharsis in each performance, Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts is a raw and deeply personal portrait of the pitfalls of success and the endless churn of being a professional performer.
