"An affectionate tribute to a dance company that dares to defy convention" Montreal Gazette

Rebels On Pointe reveals the history of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the beloved all-male drag ballet company founded on the heels of New York's Stonewall riots more than 40 years ago. Juxtaposing intimate scenes with the dancers and awe-inspiring performance footage, the cinéma vérité documentary celebrates our shared humanity through universal themes of identity, dreams, love, loss, determination and resilience. For The Trocks, being a ballerina is not merely dancing in a tutu, but an act of rebellion. (90 min.)
