In Conjunction with the 30th Anniversary of Madonna: Truth or Dare, Film Movement will Re-Release “Strike A Pose” Documentary on May 21st
In 1990, seven young male dancers – 6 gay, 1 straight – joined Madonna on her most controversial tour: The Blond Ambition World Tour in support of her fourth studio album, Like a Prayer. Both on stage through 57 lavish shows and in the iconic film Madonna: Truth or Dare, the seven talented dancers – Luis Camacho, Oliver Crumes, Salim Gauwloos, Jose Gutierez, Kevin Stea and Carlton Wilborn — showed the world how to express yourself.
25 years following Blond Ambition, STRIKE A POSE, from directors Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan, reveals the truth about life during and after the tour, when the seven men were ambassadors to the world on behalf of the LGBTQ community during the height of the AIDS epidemic. This acclaimed documentary portrait is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are.
Nominated for a Teddy for Best Documentary Film at the Berlin International Film Festival, STRIKE A POSE, being re-released by Film Movement in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of Madonna: Truth or Dare, also captured the Jury Prize for Best LGBTQ Film at the Key West Film Festival and was a Top 20 Audience Favorite at Hot Docs.
