Rachel Rampleman’s 30-minute video Poison (My Sister Fucked Bret) documents her sister Sarah candidly telling the story of her intense infatuation with Bret Michaels, frontman for the band Poison, and what happened when she actually hooked up with him. Sarah had been kissing posters of Bret for years. Being with Bret was her ultimate fantasy: she imagined it constantly, but never imagined it would actually happen. Her story of the encounter is humorous and heartbreaking, and the intimate details take on a universal scope as her rockstar fantasy turns into anxiety, self-consciousness and ultimately disenchantment as she discovers that the real-life experience was not what she’d imagined. Poison will be screening continuously, starting every half hour.
