HOW TO FAIL AS A POP STAR
VIVEK SHRAYA CANADA | 2023 | 73 MIN | ENGLISH
Vivek, a queer brown boy from Edmonton, tries, and fails, to achieve pop stardom, told from the perspective of the now 40-something trans femme artist that boy became.
What happens when a star isn’t born? An adaptation of Vivek Shraya’s hit play and subsequent book, How To Fail as a Popstar answers this question with hilarity, vulnerability, a healthy dose of imagination, and of course, music. The series tracks the journey of a young queer brown boy growing up in Edmonton trying to achieve pop stardom and what went almost right along the way – from the perspective of the now 40-something trans femme artist that boy became.
