Los Angeles stand-up comic Miguel Fierro is tired of this pandemic, the lockdowns, the eating, the streaming, the stress, the anxiety–all of it. But most of all, he misses the stage and the highs of bringing a little bit of laughter into the world. With nothing left, Miguel takes us on a journey through LA and into the hearts and smiles of strangers who haven’t felt true joy since COVID kept us apart.

Disembark is the sixth Short Film by drag artist Mandy Sweats. Finalising their Isolation series, Disembark tackles the mix of fear and excitement, nerves and anxiety of jettisoning from isolation. Are we prepared for the outside world? Have we dealt with our fears from before, or merely pushed them down? Disembark tackles these questions in Mandy’s signature surreal, darkly comic style.
“This is a lovely little property sir, with huge amounts of promise, that just needs to be…whipped into shape”
Mandy is the third most successful realtor at Bottom Drawer estate agencies (though she was voted most likely to win a hotdog eating contest at the staff Christmas do). She is very excited to be exhibiting this new property on the market, all from the comfort of her basement. But her clients may be delving into a world far more nightmarish than they could have possibly imagined.
For Sale is the fifth short film by drag artist and queer filmmaker Mandy Sweats. It is a surreal, pitch-black horror-comedy about the fine line between image and reality, pride and vanity, and selling yourself and selling out.
This film was originally submitted to Luna’s Drag Macabre Season 1: Inner Demons. A huge thank you to Luna Lestrange and the whole LDM team for allowing me a platform to debut this performance.
