We’ve been waiting weeks to finally be able to officially announce this. The Alex Berry directed feature length look at our own drag superstar, JINKX MONSOON, has a release date and venue. Making its world debut on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 at Seattle’s most glamorous cinema, the Cinerama, DRAG BECOMES HIM in its full length version will screen for fans of Jinkx, the winner of season five of LOGO TV’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race”. Based on a series of short films made by Berry and Jerick Hoffer, Jinkx’s boyish half both before and after the filming of RPDR, the film chronicles the path of Jinkx/Jerick from their hometown of Portland, Oregon, to Cornish College of the Arts here in Seattle and the establishment of their drag career in the clubs and bars of Capitol Hill. Along the way, you’ll hear Jinkx/Jerick tell the story of their journey with the help of family, friends, and co-stars giving their own testimony. For Seattle fans, it will be a special treat as dozens of familiar faces will appear in the film which also features “Seattle” as a major character in the story, as showcased by the gorgeous night time camera work of director Alex Berry.
