LOS ANGELES — Adult star Brittany Andrews' feature length documentary "Stage Brother" will premiere in Los Angeles on Oct. 13 as part of the CineKink Film Festival.
"Stage Brother" will screen during the festival at 6 p.m. at Studio Servitu in downtown LA which is located at 825 S. Alameda St. (between 8th/Olympic), 90021. An after-party will follow at the same location at 9:30 p.m. (check Cinekink website for details).
The film made its debut in New York City and screened in Las Vegas at CineKink earlier this year. 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" follows 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 doc 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 also appears in the doc as mentor and voice of reason for Jennifer. “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.”
Andrews continued, “'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 – 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.
Admission is $10 at the door or $7 in advance through the CineKink and EventBrite.
