SHAKEDOWN (2018)

i started filming at the club shakedown at the end of 2002, bush was president, it was a year after 9/11 and i had just moved back to los angeles after antioch. napster still worked, it was the beginning of reality tv, cribs and pimp my ride were on. cita’s world was on and was the first ai host. people had a very different relationship to cameras / privacy and being filmed, i was lucky to be able to film at shakedown every thursday and friday the club was open.

in one way shakedown is a documentary and in another way shakedown is a dream.
