A new short film about a drag queen who stages a protest in a cemetery when she discovers that the remains of Hollywood legend Judy Garland are going to be moved, is now available on Amazon Prime UK.
Digging Up Dorothy is based on true events, with the film's screenwriter and lead actor, Darren Stewart-Jones, having written the script after reading an article on Liza Minnelli's plans to exhume her mother's remains.
“I was all set to walk the red carpet this film festival season,” says Darren, who plays drag queen Ruby LaRue. “Most of the festivals that the film was accepted into are either cancelled or postponed.
“I just want people to see this movie. The film was a labour of love for me, and I was so disappointed when festivals in Philadelphia and Atlanta that planned to show the movie were cancelled. Of course, safety had to come first.”
