Too busy prepping for the debut of Sidetrack's Kurt Cobain About a Son I missed the premiere celebration for Paper Dolls, which opened last night at the Film Forum. The doc follows a group of transvestite Filipino drag queens that spend their days as caregivers to elderly Jews in Israel. Yeah, I know it almost sounds like a talk show parody from the days of UHF. It's not. Deftly intermixing human drama with political conflict, the film is at its root a very human story of people and the families they create. I've been a supporter and fan of the doc since I first saw a rough assembly over a year and a half ago, and it's great to see it opening theatrically. Now I wish I hadn't missed the party!
