THE TOPP TWINS: UNTOUCHABLE GIRLS

DIRECTOR: Leanne Pooley - NEW ZEALAND

One of New Zealand’s most cherished and charmingly irrepressible performing duos, twin sisters Jools and Lynda Topp are immensely popular with rednecks and left-wingers alike. Although they do not look identical, their voices virtually are, melding into a yodelling, country-and-western harmony all its own. Jools and Lynda introduce themselves during a performance full of music and happy memories. Colleagues and friends proceed to shine light on the special success of the sisters’ cheerful, radical lesbian love songs and anarchist vaudeville comedy. Pooley weaves performances and home movies from their carefree farm childhood with footage of the sisters during demonstrations against nuclear weapons, apartheid, and for gay rights, to fashion an affectionate, unforgettable portrait.

Filmography: Haunting Douglas (03), The Promise (05), Try Revolution (06).

Sponsored by Q Doc: Portland Queer Documentary Film Festival.
