WNDX: Shakedown

$0.00$10.00

Thu, Mar 14 / 7 pm

‘Shakedown’ was a series of parties founded by and for African American women in Los Angeles that featured go-go dancing and strip shows for the city’s lesbian underground scene. Showing the protagonists backstage and in interviews, this intimate chronicle reveals that ‘Shakedown’ was more than just a strip club; as one of the few spaces for lesbian subculture, the club brought together and galvanised a community of freaks and queers of colour.

Presented in partnership with the WNDX Festival of Moving Image.
