Nomi Malone’s is “a story many queer people understand to our core,” writes Jeffrey McHale, the director of the documentary “You Don’t Nomi,” available June 9th.
JEFFREY MCHALE (Director / Producer / Editor) is a documentary filmmaker based in Los Angeles.His feature film debut, YOU DON’T NOMI, is the zenith of what he calls his “Showgirls adventure.” While McHale's inspiration for You Don’t Nomi originated with the unexpected viral success of his 2010 trailer mashup of Paul Verhoeven’s Showgirls and Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, Nomi also synthesizes recurring themes in McHale’s work, including the examination of queer subcultures and the exploration of how identities are articulated. Asa television editor, McHale’s work includes acclaimed technology and science news series Tech Know for Al Jazeera English and most recently the groundbreaking World Cup docuseries Phenoms for Fox. You Don’t Nomi has screened all over the world, including Tribeca, BFI, Melbourne International Film Fest, Outfest and Sitges. A native of Michigan, McHale began his career at WGN America after studying film at Columbia College Chicago.
