Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams and family, Rebels on Pointe is the first-ever documentary film celebrating the world famous Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. The notorious all-male, drag ballet company was founded over 40 years ago in New York City on the heels of the Stonewall riots, and has a passionate cult following around the world. Their affectionate, often hilarious parody of classic ballet has won legions of fans. The film juxtaposes intimate behind-the-scenes access, rich archives and history, engaging character-driven stories, and amazing dance performances shot in North America, Europe and Japan. The award-winning Rebels on Pointe is a creative blend of gender-bending artistic expression, diversity, resilience, passion and purpose. It’s a story full of humor and heart, which ultimately proves that a ballerina is not only a woman dancing—but an act of revolution in a tutu. Directed by Bobbi Jo Hart (I Am Not a Rock Star).
