Bobbi Jo Hart is the director of the new movie Rebels on Pointe which is the first documentary that has gone behind the scenes of the world-famous all-male (and all-gay) ballet company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. It’s a wonderful heartwarming tale of how this Company has not just survived for over 40 years doing their delightful parodies of romantic and classical ballets that have not just won them fans all over the world, but how they have become one of the oldest (and happiest) LGBT organizations.

On the eve of the movie’s East Coast Premiere at Miami’s OUTshine Festival Bobbi sat down with Roger Walker-Dack for queerguru reports on PTV’s Channel 99 to talk about what making this film meant to her.   The interview at the Albion Hotel, Miami Beach was filmed by Douglas C. Lance of www.fotonoggin.com
