Producer Courtney Hermann & Editor Kerribeth Elliot will discuss their documentary, Exotic World and the Burlesque Revival, at NW Documentary on Saturday, 9/29. The duo will focus on managing media and editing for non-fiction, including music placement and purchase.
Exotic World and the Burlesque Revival is the story of a goat farm in the middle of the Mojave Desert that became ground zero of the largest burlesque revival since the 1940s. The film focuses on former striptease dancers Jennie Lee (a 1950s labor union organizer for strippers) and Dixie Evans (“The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque”) who transform a goat shed into the world’s first and only museum and retirement home devoted to burlesque—Exotic World (a.k.a. The Burlesque Hall of Fame). With little more than a social security check, Jennie and Dixie refuse to let the art of burlesque fade to memory. View the film’s trailer here.
The workshop is being held as part of the NW Documentary Film Series at the Hollywood Theatre. After the workshop, participants are encouraged to attend the Portland Premiere of the film, at 7:30pm on 9/29 at the Hollywood Theatre.
