About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 Inside Out Toronto 2SLGBTQ+ Film Festival

Ride along on a surreal, glittery musical romance, all set to the hits of the iconic, Grammy Award-winning Indigo Girls. Serious musician Doom (Alan Cammish) and free-spirited circus kid Glitter (Filipino musical superstar Alex Diaz) start a budding summer relationship filled with camping trips, late-night conversations, and plenty of song and dance. Their relationship is put to the test as they deal with trying to make it in the music biz, their mothers (Ming-Na Wen and Missi Pyle), and finding what feeds each of their souls and dreams. Punctuated by an all-queer supporting cast, Glitter & Doom (2024) is a creatively ambitious musical about the power of love.

“Full of elaborately staged and spirited sequences that come alive out of passion…it’s bound to sweep you up in style.”

—Stephen Saito, Moveable Fest
