When the Beat Drops is a pioneering documentary that takes viewers into the high-stakes and underground world of a dance subculture known as Bucking. Bucking emerged two decades ago by black gay men as a reaction to oppression from both the African American and LGBT community. Over the years, Buckers have existed in secrecy, often dancing in the after-hours of seedy clubs – far from judgment and more socially accepted dancing. But the clock is running out, and Buckers realize that they must pass the torch down to a new generation if this dance is to survive. Those passionate few who have dared to perfect this forbidden male dance in private are ready to come out and show the world who they really are.

Screening as part of Stranger Than Fiction's Fall 2018 season.
