The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson

The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson

Describing herself as a ‘street queen,’ Johnson was a tireless voice for LGBT pride since the days of Stonewall. Her death in 1992 was declared a suicide by the NYPD, but friends never accepted that version of events. This documentary is a celebration of Johnson’s activism and legacy. And an attempt to solve the mystery of her demise.

Conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton were once the cream of the sideshow crop. Taught to sing and dance at an early age, the winsome duo ascended through the early 20th-century vaudeville circuit as a side attraction (working alongside Bob Hope and Charlie Chaplin as well as a memorable turn in the Tod Browning classic “Freaks”) before a cascade of unscrupulous management and harsh mistreatment brought their careers (and lives) tumbling down. This engrossing glimpse into a bygone era is filled with fascinating interviews and rare archival footage.
