Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances the Q&A will now be held over skype.

Owned by women, underground and illegal in nature, the club Shakedown was an independent, all black lesbian strip club operating in LA during 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.

SQIFF's Sliding Scale Ticket Prices apply to this show.

Followed by a Skype Q&A with director Leilah Weinraub. Presented in partnership with Scottish Documentary Institute.
