Netflix released the trailer for the new documentary Strip Down, Rise Up from Academy Award–nominated director/producer Michèle Ohayon about women who come together to heal through sensual movement, specifically pole dance. The documentary featuring Sheila Kelley, Amy Bond, Jenyne Butterfly, Patricia Buck, and Evelyn Oshita, among others will debut on February 5, 2021.
The vérité-style film follows a diverse group of women of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and body types, who reclaim themselves through pole dance either as a sport, an art, or as a way of unlocking their body in order to heal from trauma, release shame and restore self acceptance.
Shot by an all-female crew with rare access, Strip Down, Rise Up offers an emotionally gratifying, visually astounding and unexpected look at the fascinating behind-the-scenes world of pole artistry and expression. Featuring songs by Coldplay and FKA twigs.
