Rebels on Pointe

Description

Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, family, loss and love, 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. Shot in North America, Europe and Japan, Rebels on Pointe ultimately proves that a ballerina is not only a woman dancing — but an act of rebellion in a tutu.
