Based on the Ball of the Forty-One which was a society scandal in early 20th-century Mexico. The incident revolved around an illegal police raid carried out in November 1901 in a private home in Mexico City. The scandal revolved around that that of the group of men who attended, 19 were dressed in "feminine" clothing. Despite the government's efforts to hush the incident up, the press was keen to report the incident, since the participants belonged to the upper echelons of society (including the son-in-law of the incumbent President of Mexico). This scandal was unique in that it was the first time homosexuality was openly spoken about in the Mexican media and had a lasting impact on Mexican culture.
The opening credits start with the technical and production people. The actors just appear on the closing credits. See more »
In this macho society, they go against the established to be a man
I Love this movie. based on real events.
a dance against homophobia and that reflects one of the most controversial and stigmatized episodes in the history of Mexico.
the camera shots, the music, the costumes and the high-level performances and at the same time I consider that the representation of the LGBT community in the cinema is very
important and thanks to the cinema this type of stories can be told.
