Summary
  • "Mad Hot Ballroom meets Paris is Burning...or is it RuPaul's Drag Race meets Dancing with the Stars? Whatever your reference, the award-winning and crowd-pleasing documentary Hot to Trot offers a deep-dive look inside the fascinating but little-known world of same-sex competitive ballroom dance. This lively, poignant film follows an international cast of four magnetic men and women over several years, on and off the dance floor, as they journey to the quadrennial Gay Games." --from container
  • "Hot to Trot is an intimate, humanist account of a captivating phenomenon <U+2014> a world in which personal passion meets political muscle. Away from their extraordinary feats on the dance floor, the characters<U+2019> backstories frame their struggles and conflicts in life: charismatic Ernesto, a Costa Rican former meth head; gritty Emily, a severe lifelong Type 1 diabetic, who wears an insulin pump 24/7, even while performing; dazzling Russian dance champ Nikolai, who came out only a few years ago and longs for family acceptance; and careerist Kieren, whose identity was forged in a strict New Zealand military environment with deep tentacles. The film follows them over time, as their relationships with others, and themselves, develop and deepen. Dance is a form of personal power & political engagement that simultaneously (re)shapes their identities and helps them overcome uniquely personal challenges. They are emblems of LGBTQ politics, writ small <U+2013> but they are living the issues, rather than working them. And Hot to Trot<U+2019>s story, which lives at the intersection of art, activism and passion, has appeal to a broad and diverse audience. As these dancers evolve, we understand, vividly and personally, the real impact of the LGBTQ politics we read about every day. And we care." --from website
