On Thursday evenings, a children's karate school transforms into a male strip joint. Hundreds of women convene for a potluck fund raiser and the opportunity to throw singles at the hot New Jersey Nasty Boyz. This One's For the Ladies isn't just about the tips or the dancing. It's a heartwarming story about friendship, community, these incredible women and the resilience they show toward whatever comes their way. Winner, Special Jury Recognition for Best Cast Award, SXSW.

"This One's For The Ladies tackles a lot of hot button topics like female sexuality, race, family and class. The challenge has always been to remain fearless and stay true to the stories of the people in my doc. We hear a lot about the white working class - and how authentically American they are. But we rarely hear from or about working class black and brown people. We rarely see women with different body types on screen. And we certainly don't hear what black and brown women want or enjoy in the bedroom. This One's For The Ladies doesn't shy away from any of that and I think these types of discussions make some people—both black and white—uncomfortable." —Director Gene Graham interview with Jason Whyte
