In the 2016 indie LGBTQ comedy film, "Hurricane Bianca," Bianca Del Rio — the winner of "RuPaul's Drag Race" season 6 — stars as Richard, a New York City school teacher who relocated to a small town in Texas, where he's outed and fired. Richard reappears as his alter-ego, Bianca del Rio, to seek revenge and wreak havoc on the haters. This week, ImageOut partners with Wolfe Video for a special sneak preview of the "she-quel," "Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate." Rochester's own Mrs. Kasha Davis and Darienne Lake make their feature film debut in the movie, alongside Janeane Garofalo, Wanda Sykes, and fellow RPDR alums Katya and Shangela. Rachel Dratch reprises her role as Bianca's nemesis Debbie, who is released from jail and tricks Bianca Del Rio into joining her on a dangerous mission to homophobic Russia.

"Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate" screens Wednesday, May 16, at The Little Theatre, 240 East Avenue. 6 p.m. $10. The film is released on digital platforms on May 18. 258-0400; thelittle.org; tickettailor.com.
