Synopsis

It was the dance that changed a generation. You moved your hips, you gyrated, you let your partner go and swivel like crazy. In a fast-paced mix of interviews and rare archival footage, this documentary brings back all the lewd fun of the twist.

MUBI's take

Think it was just a dance? Cult documentarian Ron Mann dives into “how rock ‘n’ roll got its soul,” insightfully (and hilariously) examining the origins, effects, and moral outrage of a classic 60s trend.
