Dzi Croquettes is a revealing Brazilian documentary that explores the legacy of the daringly original, all-male dance and theater group by the same name resembling a late-20th-century version of the Ziegfeld Follies.
The cabaret group - Dzi Croquettes - used an empowering sexuality to counter Brazil's military dictatorship and revolutionize the gay movement worldwide during the 1970’s.
The feature documentary is Tatiana Issa and Raphael Alvarez's pleasure-packed exploration of the group's impact, using a multitude of talking heads and period footage to chronicle the troupe's seminal influence on their time and today's culture.
