"Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, family, loss and love, filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart’s REBELS ON POINTE is the first-ever documentary celebrating the world-famous Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. The notorious all-male, drag ballet company was founded more than 40 years ago in New York City on the heels of the Stonewall riots and has a passionate cult following around the world.
"The film juxtaposes intimate behind-the-scenes access, rich archives and history, engaging character-driven stories and live performances shot in North America, Europe, and Japan. REBELS ON POINTE is a creative blend of gender-bending artistic expression, diversity, passion, and purpose. A story that ultimately proves that a ballerina is not only a woman dancing — but an act of revolution in a tutu.
"Hart is an award-winning American/Canadian filmmaker based in Montreal. With a career that has spanned nearly 20 years, her documentaries explore often elusive or misunderstood people and ways of life, resulting in thought-provoking films that ultimately celebrate our shared humanity."—RebelsOnPointe.com
