BULLETT Presents: Jojo Baby, From the Cutting Room Floor

+

After the successful premiere of our exclusive BULLETT x Jojo Baby documentary late last year, we began filing through all the unused footage to create a follow-up feature of outtakes. The queer Chicago nightlife legend is easily one of the most fascinating subjects we’ve ever featured, so naturally production was ripe with possibilities for what could’ve been an hour-long film.

“Our interview with Jojo was probably the most difficult editing job I’ve ever done,” said Director Greg Stephen Reigh. “Jojo is by far the most interesting person I’ve ever had the fortune to get on film; I didn’t want to cut out a single second, so when I just had to leave some stuff on the cutting room floor for the sake of brevity, it was only a matter of time before I went back to it, and found I had a whole ‘nother short film’s worth of material.”

Watch, below, as Jojo divulges memories of dressing up as Divine, partying with Debbie Harry and doing Dennis Rodman’s hair:
