Product Description

Owls and Hooters’, a two-movie collection featuring lesbian icons, gun-fights, over-analysing and all the hilarious problems that arise when a group of filmmakers and actors set out to make a co-operative feature film!

The Owls
Ten years ago, The Screech was the hottest lesbian band on the scene. Now, the band reunite under circumstances that quickly spiral out of control. At a secluded pool party, the women kick back and reflect on their wild pasts, and uncertain futures. Into this stumbles beautiful punk chick Cricket (Deak Evgenikos, The Itty Bitty Titty Committee), who is looking for trouble, and finds it when a booze-fuelled row results in her ending up dead on the pool deck! Despite their conflicts, The Screech still have a bond, somewhere between
family and gang. They work together to hide the body, but a stranger calls in the shape of Skye, a butch lesbian with a gun and one helluva attitude!

Hooters
Godard said all you need to make a movie was a girl and a gun. For these lesbian filmmakers and their movie, ‘The Owls’, all you need is an idea and some friends – but a girl and a gun will always come in handy! ‘Hooters’ explores lesbian culture and the trials and tribulations of making an independent feature film, with hilarious results!
