Owned by women, underground and illegal in nature, the club Shakedown was an independent, all black lesbian strip club operating in LA from the late 90s. Director Leilah Weinraub’s film chronicles the explicit performances and personal relationships of the party’s dancers and organisers, including Ronnie-Ron, Shakedown Productions’ creator and emcee; Mahogany, the legendary “mother” of the community; Egypt, their star performer; and Jazmine, the “Queen” of Shakedown. 

Presented in partnership with Scottish Documentary Institute. All ticket holders can join us at Saramago at CCA after the screening for free drinks sponsored by Sheffield Doc/Fest.
