NEW YORK —The CineKink Film Festival will kick off its 2012 tour June 7-9 in Las Vegas with a screening of Brittany Andrews feature length documentary "Stage Brother."
The film made its debut in New York City at CineKink this past February. It won the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary Feature, making it the 15th award Andrews has won for a mainstream film and television project.
"Stage Brother" centers on the strong brother/sister relationship between Oxygen reality star Jennifer Buonagurio (from Season 6 of "The Bad Girl’s 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 Jersey family and the cross country journey to Hollywood as her brother steps in to manage her controversial career goals and document her every move on camera.
Andrews appears as a mentor and voice of reason.
“I have taken on the role of Jennifer’s mentor — sort of her MTV Made coach,” Andrews said. “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. It’s a great story and I am super excited that it’s being toured with CineKink in other cities. Fans have been asking when they can see the film — now they’ll have a chance and I know they are going to love it!”
"Stage Brother" will screen during the festival on Friday, June 8 at 7 p.m. at Theatre7 which is located at 1406 South Third Street in the Downtown Arts District of Las Vegas.
