Days of Pentecost is a feature-length Black and Latino drag action/adventure musical road movie. It is inspired by Russ Meyer's ‘60s exploitation classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, wherein three busty go-go dancers revolt against patriarchal oppression under the hot desert sun.

Their leader, Melena D' la Moja, guides the girls with a sharp tongue and a strong arm through the desert in their search for peace, acceptance, and a man. One that won't fuck them over again and again. After a hostile confrontation with an audience member during one of their dance numbers in West Hollywood, the girls flee the big city, only to have their car break down in a small town. There, they must contend with a closeted homophobic homosexual auto mechanic who sees them as a threat to the delicate web of lies in which he lives.

The Days of Pentecost cast includes Mario Gardner, star of Cadillac Dreams (winner of an Academy Award); Alexis Arquette (star of Last Exit to Brooklyn, Pulp Fiction, Threesome, and Jack be Nimble); Ta-Tanisha (of Room 222 and Woman of Brewster Place); and Keith Antar-Mason, called "the angriest Black man in L.A." by the Los Angeles Times. Days was directed by Lawrence Elbert, whose other works have screened around the globe to worldwide acclaim.

Lawrence Elbert has been a professional filmmaker/producer/director of photography for over 30 years, producing work in both the art world and the world of television and commercials, and collaborating with such artists as Rosa von Praunheim, Matt Stone, Trey Parker, Jackie Beat, Selene Luna, Michael Musto, Nina Hagen, Roseanne Barr, Jane Fonda, Janice Dickinson, Suge Knight, George Clinton and the Funkadelics, Sly Stone, and many more.

"Totally blowing the Richter scale of camp! …The fun never stops, fueled by melodramatic sound, distorted closeups and intentionally fake-looking sequences." — LGNY, New York
