Join us this Wednesday 24th October, 8pm, for a showing of ‘Live! Nude Girls, Unite!’ ( 2005 dir. Vicky Funari, Julia Query ).
Film description follows”
“Documentary look at the 1996-97 effort of the dancers and support
staff at a San Francisco peep show, The Lusty Lady, to unionize.
Angered by arbitrary and race-based wage policies, customers’
surreptitious video cameras, and no paid sick days or holidays, the
dancers get help from the Service Employees International local and
enter protracted bargaining with the union-busting law firm that
management hires. We see the women work, sort out their demands, and
go through the difficulties of bargaining. The narrator is Julia
Query, a dancer and stand-up comedian who is reluctant to tell her
mother, a physician who works with prostitutes, that she strips.”
Start time is 8pm.
All welcome, entry is Free and donations are appreciated.
