A controversy over a film from Monterey county which proclaims in its movie trailer that it was an official selection of the 2019 San Luis Obispo International film Festival. Wendy Edison is festival director of the San Luis Film Festival. She tells the Tribune, “Even though this film did not end up screening at the festival, the truth is that the film did not receive an adequate vetting process. For that, the festival apologizes.”
Loqueesha is a film by comedian Jeremy Saville. He portrays a white bartender who pretends to be a black female radio talk show host. Some call the film “racist” and “disgusting.” Critics compare it to Soul Man which told the story of a white college student who pretends to be black in order to get into Harvard law school. Saville cites as an inspiration White Chicks a film by black comedian Marlon Wayans about two black FBI agents who go undercover as white socialites.
