About:
An intimate look at a long-running all-male drag ballet troupe.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
New York City’s Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo has charmed audiences for more than four decades, bringing the dance form to a modern audience… with a decided twist. Formed in an era of newfound gay liberation, the Trocks, as the all-male troupe is affectionately known, fuses camp humor with classical ballet, performing in drag and lending a refreshing satirical edge that upends elitist expectations of the art form. Bobbi Jo Hart reveals the past and present of this talented ensemble as they perform around the world.
