DIRECTOR(S): Anthony & Alex

STARRING: Susanne Bartsch, Hector Xtravaganza

GENRE: Documentary Film

SYNOPSIS: A mesmerizingly expressive portrait of a fiercely individual New York counterculture icon SUSANNE BARTSCH: ON TOP candidly captures the titular “Queen of the Night” and patron saint of LGBTQ inclusion and advocacy with a commanding voice and sharp wit much like its subject. More than just a tribute to the “Queen of the Night” and staunch LGBTQ advocate this dynamic debut from directing duo Anthony&Alex captures the essence of Bartsch’s everyday balance between compassion and control. As Bartsch prepares for an FIT exhibit of her nightlife fashions she faces the challenges of a changing New York City landscape (as well as the construction within her homestead of many decades the iconic Chelsea Hotel) while reconciling how her legacy lives on today.
