This One’s for the Ladies

Buy Tickets

New England Premiere

Genre: Documentary Feature
Runtime: 82 minutes
Director: Gene Graham

Director Gene Graham serves up a little slice of American nightlife. On Thursday nights, a karate school for children becomes an exotic dance club for…well, the ladies, of course. The members of male strip crew the New Jersey Nasty Boyz gyrate for the tips that hundreds of attending women happily hurl at this combination potluck fundraiser/exhibitionist extravaganza. But THIS ONE’S FOR THE LADIES has a lot more to show than simple spectacle. By turns heartwarming and hilarious, Graham’s film is a study of the roles that community, race, friendship, and—yes—sex play in the lives of black women in America.
