GODDESS: The Fall and Rise of "Showgirls"

$55,601

637

UPDATE: WE DID IT, THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!!!! Let's set a stretch goal in these final hours of $55K -- can we do it??

Hello, darlin’s! We’re the filmmaking team behind documentaries you may have previously enjoyed, such as Vito, I Am Divine, Tab Hunter Confidential, and The Fabulous Allan Carr. We’re now very proud to introduce you to our latest feature, GODDESS: THE FALL AND RISE OF "SHOWGIRLS"

We’re launching this campaign on 3/19, aka “Showgirls Day,” and we’re so excited we can barely thread a needle! For the next 30 days, we’ll be revealing the cast and crew members of Showgirls we’ve interviewed, along with other titillating news about the documentary.

Goddess will be the definitive chronicle of one of the most riveting, polarizing, derided and deified movies of the past 25 years (or EVER). We’ll explore Showgirls’ journey from box office poison to beloved cult classic, and the effect it had on the careers of those involved. We’ll also examine the legacy of Showgirls, and the woman at the center of its storm.

In order to make this movie a reality, we’re counting on our fellow Showgirls fans to make it rain to the tune of $50,000 (or more!) to help us pay for editing, music, graphic design, archival footage, sound and legal. You don’t need an MBA to know that’s a lot of cash – and if we don’t hit the jackpot of the goal we’ve set, the whole campaign will be a bust. But we’ve gotta gamble if we wanna win!

We have some fabulous incentives to help us thank you for your support, whether you donate at the Doggy Chow level or want to be a Goddess yourself. We truly appreciate contributions of any size.

XOXOX 

Jeffrey and Lotti, Producers of GODDESS: The Fall and Rise of “Showgirls”

 THE GODDESS NARRATIVE

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but for the cast and crew of one particular film, what happened in Vegas changed the course of the careers of those attached…as well as cinema itself…forever.

Billed as a searing and sexual look into the world of the erotic dancers of Las Vegas, Showgirls was touted as a benchmark in a new era of adult entertainment, and as a flagship for the NC-17 rating. Boundary-pushing director Paul Verhoeven and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas birthed a film that was poised to show that the world was ready for clever eroticism at the multiplex. However, reactions to Showgirls upon its opening were less than favorable, and critical venom aimed at the film ensured that the NC-17 rating was no longer “the next phase” but box office poison. Lead actress Elizabeth Berkley bore a large brunt of Showgirls’ derision, its failure marring her career for years to come.

But in the past 20+ years, the film initially treated by Hollywood and critics as an unmentionable stain has been reinvented as a sparkling gem of cult cinema. Showgirls’ evolution from demonized celluloid to canonized classic mirrors not only the evolution of the movie’s lead character, Nomi Malone, but also of the woman who played her. Nearly defeated by an industry who blamed a young woman who unapologetically celebrated her sexuality, Elizabeth Berkley – buoyed by the thunderous support of fans – publicly embraced her legacy at a 20th anniversary screening of Showgirls. Berkley acknowledged the growing impact of her iconic character she tried for years to forget, and admitted that she’d grown to admire Nomi’s strength herself.

And Berkley doesn’t stand alone. A growing congregation of Showgirls devotees have embraced their inner Goddesses and taken that love out into the world. Midnight screenings, themed drag shows, and numerous references, parodies and homages in pop culture has ensured Showgirls’ continued popularity, while also introducing it to new audiences. An initial box office bomb is now one of MGM’s Top 20 all-time sellers on home video. The movie that everyone once hoped to forget now stands to be remembered for all time.

Goddess: The Fall and Rise of Showgirls talks to the cast and crew who lived through this epic journey, as well as to scholars, journalists, drag queens and fans who contributed to Showgirls’ redemption. These all-new interviews, along with never-before-seen archival footage and photos, will make this The Definitive Showgirls Documentary that lusty fans have been waiting for!

WHO WE ARE

Jeffrey Schwarz (Director/Producer) is an Emmy Award-winning producer and director based in Los Angeles. Previous work includes the the Emmy Award-winning HBO Documentary Films’ Vito, SXSW premieres Tab Hunter Confidential and I Am Divine, The Fabulous Allan Carr, Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon, and the 2007 AFI Fest Documentary Audience Award winner Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story. 

Lotti Pharriss Knowles (Producer) is a Los Angeles-based writer and Emmy-nominated producer. Previous documentary collaborations with Jeffrey Schwarz include Vito, I Am Divine, and The Fabulous Allan Carr. She is also the screenwriter and producer of the feature horror-comedy Chastity Bites, currently available on Amazon Prime! She and husband John had a Showgirls-themed wedding in Vegas in 2002. 

PAUL VERHOEVEN

Paul Verhoeven is the director of – and visionary behind – Showgirls, as well as many other iconic films from the past five decades like Robocop, Total Recall, Basic Instinct, Starship Troopers, and most recently Elle. Paul doesn’t watch his films after completing them except Showgirls, “which I watch 20 times over... because I truly think it is so elegantly made.”

We are thrilled that director Paul Verhoeven has given Goddess: The Fall and Rise of Showgirls his official blessing and participation. The world will finally learn about his true intentions behind the film, the themes he wanted to explore, the film’s elaborate technical achievements, how he directed his leading lady Elizabeth Berkley, and his thoughts on why Showgirls has such a powerful afterlife.

Risks and challenges

Making a documentary as dazzling and sexy as Showgirls itself is expensive, from editing and graphic design to music and sound mixing – not to mention clearance and legal costs.

If you’ve been burned before on Kickstarter, never fear…we will finish this movie. As
Showgirls fans ourselves, we are fully committed to making a film we can all be proud of. We know how passionate Showgirls fans are, and we’re counting on that love and generosity and to propel us to our goal…and beyond!
