Our Dance of Revolution
New York Premiere
Dir. Phillip Pike, Canada, 2019, 102 mins
An audience favorite at this year’s Hot Docs, OUR DANCE OF REVOLUTION is an enriching documentary that celebrates the unsung heroes of Toronto’s black LGBTQ community. Tracing four decades of necessary rebellion while highlighting the crucial role of black women and black queer spaces, director Phillip Pike gives voice to the trailblazers who fought on the front lines against violence and police brutality via fascinating archival footage and first-person interviews.
OUR DANCE OF REVOLUTION will educate, uplift, and move you—and it makes very clear that the era of activism isn’t over, and the fight for queer and black rights demands a more international understanding of organization and resistance.
