Gay YouTube sensation Todrick Hall is nothing if not ambitious, and confident. He's planning a visual album as well as a concert tour for his album Straight Outta Oz which cleverly mashes up his signature rap tunes with the iconic Wizard of Oz.
In this free youth screening, we follow the super-stylish, witty, and incredibly talented, Hall. It is clear that he takes his status as a role model for LGBTIQ youth seriously, using his music to open up about his life and sexuality. Behind the Curtain also shares Hall's story, including his occasionally rocky relationship with his mother.
Filled with plenty of Hall's music, and directed by Katherine Fairfax Wright (who also helmed the award-winning Call Me Kuchu that screened at the 2013 Mardi Gras Film Festival), this is one hell of a ride. Click those ruby trainers and get set to head down Hall’s very own yellow brick road of camp creativity.
Breaking down stereotypes one performance at a time, one cannot help but become a Todrick Hall fan by the end of this wonderfully inspirational film. - Cinema Axis
