This is the trailer for my feature film "Betty Blowtorch and Her Amazing True Life Adventures." It made it's debut in the AFI documentary series and later won the audience award at the Silver Lake film festival. It went on to be released by acclaimed documentary studio "Cinema Libre." and is available anywhere DVD's are sold or rented.
Here are just a few reviews.
"Funny, touching and jubilant."
"We dare you not to be moved by the tragic story presented here"
Film Threat Magazine
"Honest, vulnerable, gritty and unafraid. The film refuses to be become melodramatic even when faced with death. A film every music-lover owes it to themselves to see."
The American Film Institute
"Meet the girls your parents warned you about dating... or turning into."
"Betty Blowtorch and Her Amazing True-Life Adventures has an appeal that extends far beyond its subject's fan base and is worth a look for anyone who enjoys a good doc, even folks who wouldn't normally be into a band fronted by one Bianca Butthole. Behind all the tattoos and the raunchy verbiage, the musician born Bianca Halstead turns out to be one smart, sweet and immensely appealing woman, and her tragic death in 2001 gives the film an unexpected resonance."
The San Jose Mercury News
"With the films powerful execution, you can't help but feel an immense loss, as if you knew Bianca personally, and after seeing her life unfold, most will wish they did."
