Written and Directed by Leilah Weinraub, SHAKEDOWN is the story of Los Angeles’ lesbian strip club scene and its genesis. Owned and operated by women, underground and illegal in nature, the club Shakedown is the darker, faster, younger iteration of this dance culture.
The film is a window into this world. Shakedown emerged from a post-RIOTS, post-OJ, post-integration but still very racially divided Los Angeles. In this divided city Shakedown is an independent, all black and all female cash economy. Join us as we watch a film that chronicles the explicit performances and personal relationships of the party’s dancers and organisers.
The film will show in our lower ground screening room, think Barbarella 70s spaceship meets mid century study, with a 7PM start – get down early for beer provided by TOAST and popcorn.
