The story behind the celebrated literary figure JT LeRoy

Tuesday 9 – Thursday 11 August

Running time: 1h51m

In its October 2005 issue, New York magazine ran a piece detailing how celebrated literary figure JT Leroy was actually a creation from the mind of 40-year-old San Francisco punk rocker and phone sex operator Laura Albert. In this new film from Jeff Feuerzeig (The Devil and Daniel Johnson), we are offered an insight into how Laura created the HIV-positive ex-prostitute transgender male author, a ruse that led her down a celebrity-lined rabbit hole of rock shows, fashion shows and the Cannes red carpet.
Director Jeff Feuerzeig, USA 2016, 1h51m, 15
