Revelatory (in many senses) effort from underground filmmaking legend Beth B looks at eight contemporary burlesque artists─in private as well as in performance─and examines their audience-challenging craft as well as the personal liberation that they draw from it. The World Famous *BOB*, Mat Fraser, Julie Atlas Muz, Dirty Martini, Bunny Love, and more are featured. 78 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
Pioneering New York "No Wave" underground film- maker and visual artist Beth B takes US into the 21st century underground and reveals a secret world where cutting-edge performers are taking hold of a taboo art form, Burlesque, and driving it to extremes that most people have never seen. It's satire. It's parody. It's a populist blend of art and entertainment that gives new meaning to the word "transgression." Above all, it is mind- blowing fun and a fascinating depiction of personal liberation through art. Exposed looks at eight boundary-breaking stars who use their naked bodies as canvases. These cutting edge artists combine politics, satire, and physical comedy to challenge the audience's notions of gender identity, disability, and sexuality. With World Famous 'BOB', Bunny Love, Dirty Martini, Tigger!, and more. Beth B's interdisciplinary work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and at the Tate and Hayward Gallery in London, among other notable venues.
