"Intelligent and enjoyably outrageous ... turns nudity into a source of empowerment on both sides of the footlights." - Variety

Over a career spanning more than 30 years, New York underground filmmaker Beth B has delighted in burrowing down into the most discomfiting and revealing crevices of our shared culture. Now, in the giddily trashy and confronting Exposed, she turns her inimitable eye toward the alternate burlesque scene: a world where gender stops making sense and nudity becomes a transgressive, in-your-face political statement.

Featuring interviews and performances from some of the genre's most explosive figures, Exposed is a metaphorically and literally revealing insight into the motivations and passions of these oft-dismissed artists. Crude, crazy and entirely, gloriously unashamed, Exposed is an exhilarating tribute to what the performer Bunny Love calls "freedom in vulgarity".
