Owned and operated by women, underground and illegal in nature, the club Shakedown is the darker, faster, younger iteration of this dance culture. SHAKEDOWN chronicles the explicit performances and personal relationships of the party's dancers and organizers 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. The documentary is preceded by Krissy Mahan's animated parody CAROL, which uses DIY techniques and Fisher Price toys to deconstruct class dynamics in Todd Haynes's film adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's 1952 classic of lesbian literature, THE PRICE OF SALT. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349151 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
