In this time-bending, sexy, lesbian romp, with an irreverent nod to the popular art-house classic ”Run, Lola, Run”–a talented, but distracted photographer, Lola, (Ashleigh Sumner) on the verge of success in both love and work, could lose it all if she doesn’t make it to a crucial meeting on time. But, as usual, Lola is late. With her job and girlfriend Casey, (Jill Bennett) on the line, she has three chances to make it right. In a mad dash through the streets and backrooms of San Francisco, time grows short–will Lola make it? Will she come at all?
Co-Directed by Ellen Seidler and Megan Siler, And Then Came Lola features “out” lesbians in front of, and behind the camera. LOLA’s out actresses include Ashleigh Sumner, Jill Bennett, Cathy DeBuono, Jessica Graham and Jenoa Harlow. SF animator Jett Atwood, photographer Mollie McClure, and a number of ”out” musicians also lend their creative talents to the film (soundtrack link on the right).
This independent feature, shot on location in San Francisco, had its world premiere on June 19th, 2009 at a sold-out Castro Theater as part of the San Francisco Frameline LGBT Film Festival. LOLA has screened in more than 100 LGBT film festivals throughout the world and is making history as the first indie lesbian film to be offered on Blu-ray.
