Shakedown

Documentary USA 2018

Los Angeles. Outside a nightclub, people are gathering to enter the club. From inside the beat of the bass tells us that the party is beginning. Once we are inside, Ronnie Ron, a black butch lesbian, MC and organizer of the event, welcomes us. What a night it is: welcome to the Shakedown, the legendary lesbian party, where strippers go wild under a shower of dollars. The perfect progression from the events that in the eighties united and galvanized African-American lesbians from Los Angeles, thanks to transgender Mahogany. This was the proof that not only could they be openly lesbian, but they could also have a lot of fun, without worrying about homophobia and racism. In addition, it strengthened their sense of identity and of belonging to a community. A liberating and hedonistic story, at the same time political, which director Leilah Weinraub has narrated starting from images that she has been filming since 2002.
