Urania: QUEER MoMENTI | Hairspray

Friday and Saturday, 20th and 21st Nov 2020 | 20H

On November 20th and 21st, at 8 pm, as part of the Queer MoMenti program in Urania - the space of creation, we will screen the film Hairspray, a cult film directed by John Waters.

The film is set in Baltimore in 1962. The film follows obese teenager Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake) who successfully auditions for the Corky Collins television dance show, defeating the evil Amber von Tussle (Colleen Fitzpatrick). As if that wasn’t already painful enough for the latter, Tracy, at the same time, wins the heart of her sympathy (Michael St. Gerard). After meeting some of her African-American classmates at her school, Tracy begins to insist on greater racial integration in the dance show. The same political act will get our irresistible heroine into many problems, especially with her rival and more than strenuous parents (Sonny Bono, Deborah Harry).

The tickets for the screening are available here.
