Description From director Andrew Rossi (Page One: Inside the New York Times, The First Monday in May) comes an electrifying portrait of writer and performer Okwui Okpokwasili and her acclaimed one-woman show, Bronx Gothic. Rooted in memories of her childhood, Okwui - who's worked with conceptual artists like Ralph Lemon and Julie Taymor - fuses dance, song, drama and comedy to create a mesmerizing space in which audiences can engage with a story about two 12-year-old black girls coming of age in the 1980s. With intimate vérité access to Okwui and her audiences off the stage, Bronx Gothic allows for unparalleled insight into her creative process as well as the complex social issues embodied in it.

The documentary follows the director, Gary Sheppard, as he makes a documentary about the musical style of the Village People and their influence on the music of the 70's and 80's. The documentary is filled with interviews with the actors and band members, who talk about the history of the Village People and how they influenced music. The band is interviewed as well. They are as surprised as anyone that the music has not aged well, but they still manage to perform songs that are very much like the original. The documentary is divided into two parts. The first half is about the history of the band and their music. The second half is a discussion of how the music is now. The second half is a bit more interesting, as it focuses on the band's current problems. I felt that the second half was a bit more interesting than the first half, because they try to explain how the band is doing. The band is doing well financially, but they still struggle financially. They are also dealing with some legal problems, and they are constantly dealing with other band members who are not happy with their work. The documentary also covers some of the problems they have with the music industry. Gary is trying to get a deal with a record label, but he is not getting very far. The band is having a hard time getting people to buy their music. The documentary also covers some of the problems they have with their music, and the band members talk about how they have dealt with them. I think that the documentary is really interesting. It is a very interesting look at the history of the Village People. It is very well done. I think that the documentary is well worth watching.
