Miss Rosewood spotlights the transgressive work and life of New York based transgender drag performance artist Rose Wood. Compared to the likes of queer royalty Divine and Leigh Bowery, and described as ‘The Queen of Filth’, Wood’s explicit, glorious, and grotesque performance work at New York’s infamous nightclub The Box incorporates bodily fluids, excrement, and nudity while examining and boldly challenging the socio-political status quo.


Beautifully juxtaposing the zen-like existence of Rose outside of her drag life, we see another side to her - that of a softly-spoken vintage furniture restorer undergoing a gender transition later in life.


Simultaneously heartbreaking and challenging, this film charts the difficulties Rose endures in living as a person on the margins - scenes of her bloodied and bruised after being attacked are balanced by tender moments of shared vulnerability. 


Eschewing binary notions of masculinity and femininity, Rose occupies a space of transition in life and in art.
