FREEP FILM FESTIVAL: Strike a Pose
Saturday, April 01, 2017
7:30 PM Detroit Film Theatre
(Netherlands/2016—Directed by Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan)
In 1990, seven young dancers joined pop star Madonna on her most controversial world tour. Wild, talented and barely 20 years old, the dancers set out on the trip of a lifetime, their journey captured in Truth or Dare, one of the highest-grossing documentaries ever. As a self-proclaimed mother to her six gay dancers (plus straight Oliver), Madonna used the film to take a stand on gay rights, freedom of expression and the fight against AIDS. Madonna’s flamboyant dancers became icons of sexual freedom, inspiring people all over the world. Strike a Pose not only captures their impact, but provides glimpses behind the scenes – where the dynamics were not always as graceful as they appeared onstage. Michigan Premiere. (83 minutes)
