Tales from the powder room

Tales From The Power Room is a clay animation film directed and animated by Philmah Bocks. It's a story of cathartic reminiscences of time's gone by from Lola Lick, an ageing transsexual, and her beginnings as a little boy when she farewells sobriety in a spiraling abyss of flowery hats, stilettos, makeup and alcohol.

Auto biographical and includes the voices of my dearest sisters and a special guest appearance by Kylie Minogue, Darlings you'll gasp in horror at Lola's Tale as you think to yourself: "Gurl, I've been there and it aint pretty" Glittered Kisses Darlings. MWAH xx
