License to Pimp (still in production)

30 Aug


Director: Hima B

Synopsis: License to Pimp is a feature documentary about the choices that three San Francisco strippers make as their workplaces engage in illegal labor practices.  Strip clubs refuse to pay strippers even minimum wages & actually charge them for the privilege to work.  I worked in half of San Francisco’s strip clubs during the 1990s and witnessed how co-workers felt economically pressured to engage in prostitution to make their quotas to avoid being fired.  Now as a filmmaker, I uncover current working conditions & try to find out how strip clubs are able to operate outside the law.
