All We’ve Got
Dir. Alexis Clements, USA, 2019, 67 mins
Since 2010, over 100 queer women’s spaces—from dive bars to bookstores and dance halls to health centers—have shuttered across the United States. As concern grows over the death and dearth of these essential social hubs, this documentary takes inventory of those that continue to thrive across the country, inciting a powerful conversation about the importance of community. Whether at Alibi’s Club in Oklahoma City or WOW Café Theatre in our own New York City, queer women are tirelessly making room for one another on barstools, stages, and activism’s front lines.
Intrepid first-time director Alexis Clements takes us on a far-flung journey through American herstory and resilience. ALL WE’VE GOT is a timely reminder that, despite financial hardship and the evolving definition of queer community, the existing places in which we seek shelter are more inclusive and active than ever before.
