Filmmaker Tore Dahlin says he " ... wanted to make a movie as diverse as California." That's a damn tall order, but the result, Corky's Hot Ice, looks like it may actually have succeeded: Filipino goofballs, an Israeli Eurovision Song Contest winner, the town of Guerneville, a drag performer named Fierce Flava, assorted cops, and a diamond necklace are all featured. The plot concerns the necklace (stolen) and the people who want to find it (diverse); comedy ensues. Big dance numbers by the performers of Asia SF fit in there somewhere, and our favorite local drag performer, Steven LeMay, plays the titular criminal, Corky Hotpoint.
