"Uncle Gloria: One Helluva Ride!" is a darkly funny truer-than-fiction film full of family drama and fireworks. When Butch, the 67 year-old Jewish macho and homophobic owner of a Broward auto wrecking company hides from the law as a woman during a nasty divorce, it begins a twisting journey of discovery that proves it’s never to late to be who you want to be. Naming herself after her two idols – Gloria Estefan and Gloria Steinem – she undergoes a risky sex change operation, becomes a dominatrix and finds love, all the while trying to reconcile with her dysfunctional family.
The film was among only a handful of films selected for a prestigious Film Independent Fellowship and will begin a film festival run in the Spring represented by The Film Collaborative. Support for "Uncle Gloria: One Helluva Ride" and this event to raise finishing funds for the documentary comes from the non-profit International Documentary Association, Film Independent, The Crepe Maker and Deli Lane.
