◻ A dreamy portrait of an underground strip club by and for Afro-American lesbians in Los Angeles. ◻
With Shakedown – her debut! – Leilah Weinraub documents the personal and professional relationships between dancers and strippers at a sultry black lesbian strip club. We follow Ronnie-Ron, the manager and MC, Mahogany, the scene’s legendary Mother, Egypt, star of the dance floor, and Jazmine, the inimitable Shakedown Queen.
Shakedown – meticulously compiled from more than 400 hours of visual material – is no experimental art film. Nor is it an anthropological documentary about gay-black-femme performances in L.A. Weinraub, who once worked in the club, set out to record a unique moment in the now, and turned it into a fascinating film.
