OUR DANCE OF REVOLUTION
Phillip Pike / Canada / 2019 / 102'
OUR DANCE OF REVOLUTION tells the story of how Black queer folks in Toronto faced every adversity, from invisibility to police brutality, and rose up to become a vibrant, triple-snap-fierce community. Capturing first-person accounts across a span of four decades, this feature-length documentary is more than a previously untold oral history, more than a reclamation of unsung people and events.
