The Riot Acts fit into the category of “rock documentary“, historically the most popular genre of its type. The characters of the film are not the usual stars, but those with ambiguous sexual identities. Their bodies and unconventional sexuality become political instruments and a means of artistic expression. Although the documentary takes the form of interviews, there are no “talking heads“. On the contrary the director, Madsen Minax, shows the life of the musicians on and off stage in an impressive educational way and offers a look at the trans community different to that of the popular media.
