Coming to DVD today, Tuesday, July 3:
GETTING NAKED: A BURLESQUE STORY

Director:
James Lester

Premiere:
Venice 2017 (Venice Days)

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Cleveland, Newport Beach, Berkshire, Greenwich, Florida, SF DocFest

About:
An inside look at the lives of several contemporary burlesque performers.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Uncovering NYC’s neo-burlesque subculture, director James Lester’s film offers a lingering look at several sexy denizens of the nightlife scene, including Gal Friday, Hazel Honeysuckle, and the Schlep Sisters Minnie Tonka and Darlinda Just Darlinda, whose acts range from the classic glamorous striptease to more overtly comedic schtick. Followed on- and offstage, these gifted performers reveal the liberation and empowerment they’ve gained from burlesque, even as they contend with the physical and financial demands of their competitive art form.
