Gender-Bending Stars: Beth B’s Burlesque Documentary to Premiere on Nov. 15

by Laurie Henzel

Legendary NY filmmaker Beth B is best known for her underground No Wave films of the 70’s and 80s and is considered to be one of the main progenitors of the Cinema of Transgression movement. She has recently turned her lens on one of the most fascinating genres of the past decade, the weird and wonderful world of the NYC burlesque scene. She explores eight of the major players and their passion for the art in her new documentary, Exposed. Some of our most beloved artists are featured in the film: Julie Atlas Muz, Dirty Martini, World Famous *Bob,* among others. The film also promises to delve into the nuanced and gender bending performances.

If you’ve ever seen any of these folks live, you know that it can be shocking, hilarious, and liberating all at the same time, and we hope this film gets a wide audience because it will surely blow some minds!

The film will have its NY premiere during DOC NYC Film Festival on November 15th at the SVA Theater and we would not miss it for the world. Tickets are still available here.
