Directed by Beth B
“JAW-DROPPINGLY PROVOCATIVE AND GENUINELY ENDEARING.”
— Glenn Kenny, ROGEREBERT.COM
Pioneering New York “No Wave” underground filmmaker and visual artist Beth B takes us into the 21st century underground and reveals a secret world where cutting-edge performers are taking hold of a taboo art form, Burlesque, and driving it to extremes that most people have never seen. It’s satire. It’s parody. It’s a populist blend of art and entertainment that gives new meaning to the word “transgression.” Above all, it is mind-blowing fun and a fascinating depiction of personal liberation through art.
Exposed looks at eight boundary-breaking burlesque stars who use their naked bodies as canvases. These cutting-edge artists combine politics, satire, and physical comedy to challenge the audience’s notions of gender identity, disability, and sexuality. Starring Bambi the Mermaid, Bunny Love, Dirty Martini, Julie Atlas Muz, Mat Fraser, Rose Wood, Tigger! and World Famous *BOB*.
DVD Extras Include:
- Digital transfer, enhanced for widescreen viewing
- Original theatrical trailer
JAW-DROPPINGLY PROVOCATIVE AND GENUINELY ENDEARING.
4 Stars! COMPELLING! THE PERFORMANCE FOOTAGE IS EYE-POPPING...though the greatest jolt comes from seeing these larger-than-life iconoclasts stripped of their makeup and armorlike personas.
Dancing on the wilder shores of burlesque...these confrontational comedians are experts at merging shock and showmanship.
LIKELY TO BLOW THE COBWEBS OFF ANY PRECONCEPTIONS…about gender, sexuality, empowerment and the body.
AS FREQUENTLY MOVING AS IT IS ENTERTAINING.
INTELLIGENT AND ENJOYABLY OUTRAGEOUS…Tech credits are unimpeachable.
