Punching Out (NEFAC) and OPIRG-Toronto present: *Rebel Worker Film Night*
Film: Live nude-girls Unite! Tuesday, Feburary 8th 7pm The Bahen Centre,
University of Toronto 40 St. George St. (north of college) $5 (no one turned away)
Panelists:
Kara Gillies, of the Canadian Guild of Erotic Labour and the Migrant
Sex-Workers Advocacy Group

Erin Lynn Nicholson, of Strippers United
About the film:
Striking peep-show dancers in San Francisco!

Needing a job to pay the rent filmmaker Julia Query becomes a peep-show
dancer and finds a world of tough, iconoclastic, independent and joyful
women whom she quickly comes to adore.

But Julia learns also that the women are being exploited by the club
owners: newly instituted stage fees which make dancers pay to work, being
asked to "date" the owners friends, and work that is becoming less like
performing and more like prostitution. When dancers discover that they are
secretly being videotaped for amateur porn, they decide that enough is
enough.

Julia and her colleagues head for the Service Employees Union. The
management responds with a notorious anti-union law firm. This is an
energetic, fun documentary followying Query, a lesbian stand up comedian /
peepshow dancer and daughter of a feminist activist, on her raucous
journey to help organize the first and only union of strippers in the
United States, a battle that rocks the sex industry.
