SHAKEDOWN.jpg

FILM OF THE WEEK

Our friends over at Sheffield Doc Fest bring a crazy sounding documentary to Manchester this weekend.

From director Leila Weinraub her film SHAKEDOWN chronicles the explicit performances in an underground black lesbian strip club in Los Angeles, as well as the personal relationships of its dancers and organisers. Owned and operated by women, underground and illegal in nature, the club Shakedown is the darker, faster, younger iteration of the flourishing lesbian dance culture.


SHAKEDOWN screens Saturday 10th November at 16:00, followed by a Director Q&A.
