Professor Washko’s Film Screens at the American Film Festival in Wroclaw, Poland

Posted on November 1, 2021

Professor Angela Washko‘s documentary Workhorse Queen will screen at the American Film Festival in Wroclaw, Poland, November 9-14. Washko will also be traveling to Poland to conduct a Q & A with the audience after the film screening.

Rochester, New York features a thriving drag queen scene in this cozy city, more progressive than the classic American landscapes might suggest. Perhaps it is the result of chronic winter boredom, which can function as a stimulus for creative activities. This is Ed Popil’s hometown, where he plays the role of Ms. Kasha Davis, a cordial and exaggerated domestic hen straight from a sitcom. Washko’s documentary is story of Ed’s internal dilemmas and the search for his professional and personal identity – from an unsuccessful heterosexual marriage to a relationship with a beloved man, from many years of office work to the beginning of his career as a performer, the turning point of which was participation in RuPaul’s Drag Race. But is the big show business world the right place for Kasha Davis?
