Men in tutus! Meet the extraordinary members of the all male, classical – and comic – ballet company, the world-famous Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. Born 40+ years ago after New York's Stonewall riots, the Trocks, as they are known, have a diverse, worldwide following and combine the beauty, discipline and passion of classical ballet, while sending it up with a decidedly hilarious turn. With rich behind-the-scenes access, character-driven stories, and universal themes of identity, dreams, family, loss and love, REBELS ON POINTE is a film which ultimately proves that ballerinas are not only women dancing – they can be an act of rebellion in a tutu! A deliciously subversive vision.
