“Femme” centers on Carson (Camperchioli), a gay twenty-something looking for love on all the wrong apps. After being rejected by an online hookup for being too “femme,” Carson embarks on a hilarious journey towards self-discovery and acceptance by way of a manic existential crisis and a drag queen fairy godmother. Set in Hell’s Kitchen, the epicenter of New York City gay life, Carson must confront his own notions of masculinity and gender performance within the LGBTQ community and beyond. This short film is currently being adapted into a series executive produced by Rachel Brosnahan (Emmy-winning star of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”).
Directed by Alden Peters and written by Corey Camperchioli, “Femme” stars Camperchioli, Jesus ‘Aja’ Rivera (“RuPaul’s Drag Race”), Stephanie Hsu (“The Path”), Johnny Sibilly (“Pose”), and Derek Klena (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”). Executive produced by Rachel Brosnahan. Produced by Benno Rosenwald of Mooki Entertainment, while Johan Matton and Linnea Larsdotter of Changing Film Productions co-produced the project.
