LULU GETS A FACELIFT, a feature documentary,
stars Lulu, performer extraordinaire anda "mid-life crisis
in action" who decides to get a facelift.
Funny, fabulous,touching and tragic-
this "reality" comedy is EXTREME MAKEOVER meets QUEER
EYE, with a dash of PINK FLAMINGOS and AB FAB thrown in. Indeed,
it'll leave you in stitches!
Lulu is a dish queen with a heart of gold. He's one of San Francisco's
most colorful drag artistesactual
winner of the Gong Show, and a survivor of the COCKETTES' inspired
ANGELS OF LIGHT.
The film captures his singular personality in the week before the
procedure, through the days following the surgery, and climaxes
with the final fabulous "reveal" performance

video Valentine is sometimes hysterical, sometimes bittersweet,
but always entertaining. Underneath the camp facade lies a
real vulnerability, and a documentary addressing what it is like
to get older for both gay men and citizens at-large in a youth
