Free Frameline Encore: “When The Beat Drops” Film + Q&A | SF

Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm | Cost: FREE
Bayview Opera House | 4705 3rd St., San Francisco, CA


When the Beat Drops features a documentary debut by famed choreographer Jamal Sims, whose credits include RuPaul’s Drag Race, So You Think You Can Dance, and Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour – the origins and evolution of bucking are explored, as are the life stories and struggles of various Atlanta performers.

Many of the performers risk corporate jobs to follow their passion for dance, build up the community, and remain true to themselves. And the candid conversations with team captains about issues and stigma within the community make the film truly shine.

Presenting an intimate look at the performers’ dedication to their chosen families and their craft, When the Beat Drops culminates in an edge-of-your-seat, intense competition celebrating triumph, athleticism, and artistry.

Admission is first come, first served. Arrive early to guarantee seating. This venue has accessible seats for wheelchair users. This screening will not have captions.
