Army Of Lovers In The Holy LandWATCH SCREENER
Thirty years after launching into international stardom, queer disco-pop band Army of Lovers embarks on a new chapter when frontman Jean-Pierre Barda uproots his existence to move from Sweden to Israel. So begins this fascinating documentary that examines home, identity, family and the pull of Aliyah (immigration to Israel), even after age 50. A blend of ABBA, the B-52s and performance art, Army of Lovers is still rocking pride celebrations and underground club parties with its mix of high camp, daring music videos and a motto of "More is more, less is a bore."
