Behind the Curtain: Todrick Hall // HRFF 28
Thursday Aug 10 6:00pm-9:45pm in Hawaii
Presented by Aqua-Aston Hospitality

Directed by Katherine Fairfax Wright. 2017. USA. 100 min.

From a small town in Texas to big-time show business, comes an inspiring documentary of grit, perseverance and the redemptive power of art. As Hall prepares to launch his most ambitious project—the full-scale original musical Straight Outta Oz—we watch him struggle to write songs about growing up gay and black in small-town Texas, his difficult relationship with his mom, and the harsh realities of trying to make it in show business. With limited time and budget, the odds are against him, but Hall’s passion and his team of talented performers overcome all obstacles to bring this story to the world. Premiered at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival.

Opening-night reception: Aug 10, 6-7:45pm: hosted by Chiko's Tavern in the Luce Pavilion. Behind the Curtain: Todrick Hall screens at 7:45pm, followed by a Q&A with Todrick Hall.

ALL-ACCESS FESTIVAL PASSES are available for purchase: It’s the only way to guarantee a seat at all the films, receptions, and most importantly, our signature Red Carpet Event on Saturday, August 19. #HRFF28
