Our Dance of Revolution PWYC Screening
"We are people of revolution. Were here because others have rebelled. Because others have stood in solid resistance!" Listening to Angela, a Black lesbian feminist who is rousing a crowd, we understand that, no, this particular revolution wasnt televised. Rather, from out of the shadows, it was hugged, chanted, marched, and danced into existence. 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. Our Dance of Revolution is a human-scale reckoning of how audacious individuals find themselves by finding others, and how they muster the courage, tenacity, and creativity to prevail against the forces of marginalization.
