From the creator of SCUMBAG and LITTLE HOUSE THAT COULD, comes MISTER SISTER. Jordan (Jack James Busa) is dumped by his girlfriend in his hometown of Milwaukee and moves to New York City to start life anew. He decides to go incognito by dressing in tow and is soon taken in by the LGBTQ + community as one of their own. Taking on a job as a MC at a local drag bar, he knows little by little that his next love will be found by tap-dancing single mom Marie (Debra Haden), who also works as a waitress in the same bar. Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) plays club owner, Sonny. This is a story of hope and love that brings humanity together when it is most needed.
After living in NYC for a decade as a stylist and member of Patricia Fields House of Field family, and once inventing the “gay straight man” of NeXT Magazine, director Mars Roberge offers a refreshing take on how great cultures can be different , but still the same. He insists that “everyone can learn from each other in a loving way.” He proved this to be true during the wrapping of his latest film, where the entire cast and crew were required to finish Mister Sister during the final days before New York City shut down due to the pandemic, which made it very more reflective of the time we live in. The film also features many gay icons in NYC, such as Princess Diandra, Michael Musto, Tym Moss, Brandon Olson, Gazelle Paulo and Ari Gold in his final role before succumbing to leukemia in February 2021.
Produced by World Domination Pictures, with world sales represented by Arsenal Pictures, Mister Sister plans to have its world premiere as a closing film on Dances With Filmscreening at the iconic TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California on September 12, 7pm.
