REBELS ON POINTE is the first-ever, cinéma vérité documentary film celebrating the world famous Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo — the all male, drag ballet company founded over 40 years ago on the heels of New York’s Stonewall riots. The company has performed in over 500 cities and 33 countries, and has a cult following around the world. The film juxtaposes behind-the-scenes access and intimate, character-driven stories of its dancers, highlighted by their performances shot around the world.

“Rebels On Pointe is a delightful documentary lovingly chronicled by Bobbi Jo Hart.” – The Village Voice

“A delightful, engaging cultural experience.” – Los Angeles Times

“Laugh out loud funny! An inclusive doc portrait… The dancers of REBELS ON POINTE are good company for any audience.” – Point of View Magazine
