About the Movie
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. The film juxtaposes intimate behind-the-scenes access, rich archives and history, engaging character driven stories, and dance 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 which ultimately proves that a ballerina is not only a woman dancing—but an act of revolution in a tutu.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The cinematography isn't the greatest, and the structure is hit or miss, but so what? In a movie this good natured, the heart is everything.
Fresh: A delightful, embracing cultural experience, one that the film's director, Bobbi Jo Hart, warmly captures in all its offbeat glory ...
Fresh: Friendly but matter-of-fact doc will play best with the troupe's existing fans.
Fresh: Serious balletomanes will find much to appreciate here; people who delight in seeing the form lampooned will find more.
