Do The Dance
Director: DQ Hayes
Producers: Ed Fletcher, DQ Hayes
Editor: Edo Brizio
Director of Photography: Jessica Gallant
Genre: feature-length documentary
“Do the Dance” is a feature-length documentary exploring the historic Northern California strip club indecency trial that made national headlines when Judge Earl Warren Jr. took the jury to the club and ordered the dancer to "do the dance." The project also uses this precedent-setting trial to explore the modern free expression movement, exotic expression and two American cities’ starkly different responses to adult entertainment.
The project is 40 percent shot as filmmakers seek the funds needed to complete the project for a 2019 release.
