Guilda – Elle est bien dans ma peau

Guilda – Elle est bien dans ma peau

Julien Cadieux

Canada | 2014 | 52 min
For more than 55 years, Jean Guida de Mortellaro embodied Guilda, the incomparable drag queen who had a strong impact Quebec’s popular culture. Wearing dazzling costumes adorned with sequins and feathers, Guilda was one of the first transvestites to tour the world. In this documentary about the queen of the Montreal cabaret scene, filmmaker Julien Cadieux inteviews the artist at length, revealing the duality that remains within him even to this day. Dispossessed of Guilda’s charismatic and provocative personality, the Frenchman, now a venerable 88, talks about his remarkable career and his often difficult relationship with his alter ego.
