Strike a Pose

Esther Gould & Reijer Zwaan 2016 Netherlands United States 83min english

Strike A Pose chronicles the unique journey of seven men, who were plucked from obscurity to serve as Madonna’s backup dancers during her iconic Blond Ambition tour. The subsequent tour documentary entitled Truth or Dare further catapulted the men into the limelight, as it pushed the boundaries of sexuality and shocked the world to its core. LGBTQ issues were propelled to the forefront during this period, and many of the dancers struggled to come to terms with their own sexuality in the aftermath of the tour. Darker issues such as addiction, alcoholism and HIV affected the group, as they each struggled to regain a sense of normalcy. 25 years after the Blond Ambition tour, six of the men reunite to share their remarkable and heartbreaking stories, with each member stating that the tour had changed their lives forever. Directors Ester Gould and Reijer Swan bring this compelling behind-the-scenes story to the centre stage, and shine a light on this polarizing and defining moment in pop culture. – Dave Easey
