Reclaiming public space through the art of water dance, Aquaporko! is not only the name of the fat femme synchronized swim team that Kelli Jean co founded in Sydney Australia, it is also the title of the documentary film that it inspired.
Aquaporko! is the story of the Melbourne chapter as they prepare for their first live performance. A camp look into the freedom of self respect taking up space and the power of friendship.
