Uncle Gloria: One Helluva Ride! SPECIAL SCREENING
Wednesday, Nov 29, 7pm at Savor Cinema Fort Lauderdale
Live Q&A with Gloria Stein and Director Robyn Symon in attendance!!!
UNCLE GLORIA: ONE HELLUVA RIDE! recounts the astonishing true story of Butch, the macho owner of a South Florida auto-wrecking company, who in a desperate search of a way to hide from the law, transformed himself into a woman named Gloria. But what started out as a trick to beat the system ended up changing Butch’s life forever. Now in her 80s, Gloria’s stranger-than-fiction life has been filled with risky surgeries, sex work, family dysfunction, activism, and a gender-bending love story. Full of humor, warmth, and sass, UNCLE GLORIA is a rollicking ride that must be seen to be believed.
The film has screened internationally at more than 20 film festivals and received the Best Documentary Award at the Miami OUTshine Film Festival and Atlanta Docufest. It was also selected for the prestigious Film Independent Documentary Lab.
