The CineKink Film Festival will continue its sexy U.S. tour Friday and Saturday, October 12 and 13, in Los Angeles with the premiere screening on Saturday of adult superstar, indie producer & celebrity DJ Brittany Andrews' feature length documentary Stage Brother. The film made its debut in New York City and screened in glitzy Las Vegas at CineKink earlier this year with a huge buzz and sold-out crowds. It won the "Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary Feature," making it the 15th award Brittany Andrews has won for a mainstream film and television project.
Stage Brother follows the strong brother/sister relationship between Oxygen reality star Jennifer Buonagurio (from Season 6 of The Bad Girls Club) and her overprotective brother (filmmaker Richard Buonagurio) as she pursues her dreams of fame in Hollywood and ponders entering the world of adult entertainment. The documentary explores the trials and tribulations of her defiant Catholic New Jersey family and her cross-country journey to Hollywood as her brother steps in to manage her controversial career goals and document her every move on camera.
Miss Andrews also appears in the documentary as mentor and voice of reason for Jennifer.
"I have taken on the role of Jennifer's mentor; sort of her MTV Made coach," said Miss Andrews. "I guide Jen through the pros and cons of the industry and try to help her navigate if she really wants to take this route to fame. We also explore the highs and the lows of the business and look to see at what length Jen will go for her dream of fame in Hollywood."
"Stage Brother is my first feature-length documentary," Miss Andrews continued. "It's a great story and I am super-excited that it's being toured with CineKink in other cities—especially Los Angeles, where I've had several West Coast fans asking when they can see the film. Now they'll have a chance and I know they are going to love it!"
Founded in 2003, CineKink (known also as The Kinky Film Festival) recognizes and encourages the positive depiction of sexuality and kink in film and television, most visibly through its annual film festival, CineKink NYC, featuring specially-selected programs of films and videos that celebrate and explore the wide diversity of sexuality, with offerings drawn from both Hollywood and beyond. Works presented by CineKink range from documentary to drama, camp comedy to artsy experimental, mildly spicy to quite explicit, and everything in between. In addition to screenings, the annual festival also includes a short film competition, audience choice awards, presentations, parties and a gala kick-off fundraiser, all followed by a national screening tour.
Stage Brother will screen during the festival on Saturday, October 13, at 6 pm at Studio Servitu in downtown LA, 825 S. Alameda St. (between Eighth and Olympic), Los Angeles 90021. An after-party will follow at the same location at 9:30 pm; check the Cinekink website for details.
