The Dallas Project

Tweetable Logline: “The Dallas Project” peels back the veil on the strip club industry to reveal the complex lives of the people who keep the show running.

Elevator Pitch: “The Dallas Project”is a documentary that explores the vast and consuming strip club world of Dallas, Texas and the paradoxical lives of the people that make it turn. Smack in the middle of the Bible Belt, the film exposes societal contradictions and offers a new version of the female experience.

Production Team: 
Poppy de Villeneuve – Director 
Chloe Hall – Producer

About the film:  Quote from Poppy: “The Dallas Project” was started because the strip club and stripper industry were some of the few areas I felt created clear camps – men and women. Clothes on/clothes off. I had some judgments and hard feelings towards these girls. Why, because I felt threatened or offended? Was I afraid of the sexuality that is so on display in these clubs? Would I prefer to pretend that they are bad and I am good?

Current Status: “The Dallas Project” has currently raised 48% of our goal of $49,260 on Indiegogo.
