Storyline

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. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An interesting, humorous, and "real" documentary
25 March 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

In this documentary, a group of strippers attempt to unionize against their employers at a peep-show theater in San Francisco. The friend that accompanied me to the screening disliked the fact that it was shot with a Super-8 type camera, but I didn't mind. The poor quality seemed appropriately intimate; like a home movie. This documentary displayed not only the plight of the girls to fight for basic employee benefits, but also the struggle of the narrator (Julia Query) in admitting to her mother that she delivers peep shows for money. The well-educated and extremely clever Julia is the daughter of a renowned New York doctor who has devoted a solid chunk of her life to aiding prostitutes. My major complaint with the movie was that it was very short. At 75 minutes, it was shorter than most animated features. Otherwise, it was an interesting and provocative look into the mentality of strippers and THEIR feelings about their occupation. It's something that people spend little time considering, and it was nice to see something un-cliché for once. Live Nude Girls Unite goes highly recommended.
