Dotted with palm trees and coral reefs, Guam is a United States territory where military men and Japanese tourists abound. A seemingly perfect backdrop for a strip club, the island should sound ideal to any girl coming from Portland, Atlanta, or Anchorage to work as an exotic dancer. But is it? Exotic takes us into the lives of the dancers on Guam, giving the viewer a front row seat to this fluid and secretive world. Don’t miss this rare documentary, a “Best of the Fest” selection.
