Cincinnati World Cinema presents THE TOPP TWINS: UNTOUCHABLE GIRLS, an entertaining and heart- warming documentary profiling the musical and comedic talent of Jools and Linda Topp, while also sharing a contemporary history of New Zealand. Sunday June 26, at 6:00 and Tuesday June 28, at 7:30, at the Carnegie Arts Center in Covington, post-film discussion immediately following.

From a promotional email PFLAG received: 
"As I'm telling all of my friends, "The Topp Twins" is a great film that will appeal to everyone, but as there are so few positive films featuring gay men and women we really want to get the word out as broadly as possible to the GLBT community.  The film is a documentary about two incredible twin sisters from New Zealand and their lives as singers, comedic actors, social activists - and oh, by the way, they're both lesbians. 

Lots more info and a trailer at  Tickets can be purchased in advance at any of the ticket outlets (listed on the CWC website), on-line, or at the event."
