The Film – Teddy Award Nominated – SHAKEDOWN (2017) chronicles explicit performances in an underground lesbian club in Los Angeles. Filmed from 2002 – 2015 the story functions as a legend where money is both myth and material. Cumulatively, questions arise about how to diagram the before and after of a utopian moment. Directed by Leilah Weinraub.
The Event – The hostess for the evening, Hip Hop artist extraordinaire Onye OneDa Ezeh and House Of Ghetto Manchester’s premier Vogue house will bring a unique and special live performance experience complimenting the documentary. House Of Ghetto will bring a highly sexual, gorgeous, black female vibe to the evening with exquisite performers. Get your shake down dollars ready. This is gonna be hot.
