Wolfe Video today announced HURRICANE BIANCA will be released digitally on September 23, 2016. The film stars RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bianca Del Rio (comic Roy Haylock), and tells the story of a New York teacher who is fired from a small Texan school for being gay, and returns disguised as “Bianca” to wreak revenge on the town. The film also stars Rachel Dratch, Alan Cumming, RuPaul, Margaret Cho, Bianca Leigh and RPDR alumni Willam Belli, Shangela and Alyssa Edwards.
To celebrate the release, HURRICANE BIANCA will have its U.S. premiere in New York City on Monday September 19th at 7:00pm, with additional screenings in San Francisco on Tuesday September 20th at 7:30pm, and Los Angeles on Wednesday September 21st at 7:30pm. All events will feature a Q&A with director Matt Kugelman and stars including Bianca Del Rio, with limited tickets available now to fans at HurricaneBianca.com.
HURRICANE BIANCA is directed by Matt Kugelman and produced by Ash Christian. Fans also contributed to the film with a hugely successful crowd-funding campaign, raising nearly $170,000 to assist in bringing the story to life.
HURRICANE BIANCA will be released digitally in the U.S. on Friday September 23 on iTunes, Amazon and Vimeo, and will be available globally on WolfeOnDemand.com on the same day. The DVD is now available for pre-order on WolfeVideo.com.
“These are truly special days we live in—where a clown in a gown can make her very own drag queen revenge-comedy,” said HURRICANE BIANCA star Bianca Del Rio. “However these are also days in which being LGBT can get you legally fired in 28 states. We wanted to tell a hilarious story that doesn’t shy away from that ridiculous reality, and we’re thrilled with the support it received from fans and from the incredible line-up of LGBT icons who I was forced to share screen time with. I can’t wait to share the film with fans at our premiere screenings, and for HURRICANE BIANCA to touch down in living rooms around the country on September 23.”
“Like many, we have been excited about the HURRICANE BIANCA concept for years and we are thrilled that Wolfe Releasing can now bring this whip smart comedy to fans and audiences around the country,” said Jim Stephens, President of Wolfe Releasing. “Director Matt Kugelman has created a story which showcases the fabulous acid-tongued talents of Bianca Del Rio, and headlines a year of exceptional releases on Wolfe Video.”
