Bruk Out! follows six of the boldest Dancehall Queens from around the world as they prepare to battle for the biggest trophy and cash prize in all of Dancehall. Combining explosive underground dance visuals with emotionally intimate vérité scenes, the film is a never-before-seen window into the life of the Dancehall Queen. Filmmaker Cori McKenna spent two years uncovering the struggles the Queens face but rarely show their audience: body issues, poverty, family problems, and domestic abuse. The dancers bare their skin and their souls to dispel myths about this hyper-sexual dance, explaining why it brings them pure joy, sense of self, and the strength to overcome. With determination, humor and hope, the six resilient dancers converge at the biggest Dancehall Queen competition in the world, where some dreams come to an end, and one woman is crowned the Queen.

“It is our hope that Bruk Out does for dancehall what the film Rize did for krumping. We want the documentary to offer the uninitiated an opportunity to understand without being judgemental and not just see it as twerking or whatever. We also want to represent the ladies who enter this competition — give them a voice. It is also our hope that there can be some level of acceptance.” – Director Cori McKenna
