LA vogue-ball drama comes to TIFF this year - trailer
Canadian Sheldon Larry's Leave It on the Floor works it out
As the long list of titles set to light up screens during the Toronto International Film Festival rolls out, the gayest and most fab flick we've heard of is Sheldon Larry's Leave It on the Floor, set in the LA vogue-ball scene. The film was shown at Outfest, the LA queer film festival, and the program describes the film this way:
Sheldon Larry’s sexy feature musical celebrates contemporary ball culture in Los Angeles (remember Paris Is Burning?). Hunky Brad, thrown out for being gay, stumbles into a ball, a startling underground populated by voguers, sex sirens and memorable strays. Songs by Beyoncé’s music director, Kim Burse, mix pop, hip hop, rap and gospel, while dance numbers by Mr “Single Ladies” Frank Gatson explode with heat and joy. Already compared to Rent and called “Saturday Night Fever for the millennium,” Leave It on the Floor is a party film with immense heart and an affirmation of family.
