Zeitgeist Films will be delivering a DVD edition of “No Wave” filmmaker Beth B’s Exposed to the home entertainment market place on Feb. 3.
Burlesque has its origins in the Renaissance (and likely earlier in some form either from the Greeks or the Romans), but this entertainment art form reached perfection during the Victorian era. Underground filmmaker Beth B’s film takes this performance discipline of satire and sexual expression/parody to a renaissance of its own with interviews and on-stage clips featuring eight of today’s la nouvelle vague Burlesque performers.
Such expressive talents as Bambi the Mermaid, Bunny Love, Mat Fraser and Julie Atlas Muz are among those presented here. These “outcasts” make good use of sexual expression to both compliment and enhance their respective routines, which can range from parody and satire to in-your-face political expression.
Beth B’s Exposed is a solid blend of interviews (some very interesting human beings) and performances … some of which will leave you either shocked or yearning for more!!!
