Description

Told through the eyes of singer/entertainer John Hemmer, the documentary, John Hemmer & the Showgirls, interweaves the broader New York nightclub phenomena with Hemmer’s personal and artistic journey and that of his community’s. Hemmer reunites with his band of showgirls from the famed Lou Walters Latin Quarter nightclub in New York City, and in doing so, finds renewed purpose.

John Hemmer & the Showgirls
takes a celebratory peek inside the unique golden age of live entertainment of mid-century America, while considering themes around hidden identities, vanishing histories, personal and shared legacies, and what role community plays in one's vitality as we grow older.
