high shine: 15 years of international ms boot black

high shineIn the dark corners of America’s leather bars, you can often find a bootblack hunched over, lovingly cleaning a patron’s boots for not much more than the tips that pay for their shining supplies.

Increasingly, that bootblack in the backroom is a woman and, since 1999, many woman-identified bootblacks have taken their bootlicking and leather-loving selves out of the bar’s dark corners and onto the stage, ready to compete for the International Ms Bootblack (IMsBB) title.

Directed by Christina Court, 2015, USA, 90 minutes; World premiere.
