Hush Up Sweet Charlotte Film to Screen at Sea on the Cinema Diverse Cruise to Alaska and at The Palm Springs Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

Cinema Diverse, The Palm Springs Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, announced today that it will feature a world-wide exclusive sneak preview of the film, Hush Up Sweet Charlotte, during its upcoming Cinema Diverse Cruise to Alaska August 28-September 4, 2015.

Written and directed by noted Film Director/Writer, Billy Clift, Hush Up is an homage to the 1964 Hush…Hush Sweet Charlotte film starring the iconic actresses Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland.  In Clift’s film, the leads include parody performances by drag superstars Matthew Martin and Varla Jean Merman.  Emmy-nominated actor/producer, David Millbern, also stars as Dr. Drew.   The feature role of housekeeper Velma, originally performed by Agnes Moorhead, is played by Mink Stole, made famous by cult film director, John Waters.  Other cast members include accomplished comedian/actor Jason Stuart and rising star Jesse Pepe. There are also cameos by Raja Gemini, season 3 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and international drag performer and recording artist, Honey Mahogany.  The film is produced by HERE Media

Hush Up is the story of an aging, reclusive Southern belle with a horrifying hidden family secret.  It tracks her descent into madness (with the help of a lost relative) as she fights to save her family’s historic plantation.  Will she keep her sanity and home, or will she lose it all to divisive interlopers with their own agendas?  The film keeps everyone guessing until the very end.…
