House of Shame is a Queer Party in Berlin that offers disco house beats and live acts every Thursday night. Every Thursday a new and different act – for the past ten years without interruption. Chantal is the organizer of this party – for all of the past ten years. Before that, she was a tranny hooker on the streets for 17 years. Chantal is transsexual. And an underground legend.
“Almost a historical epic: the film, when the pre-history of the party is included, spans a time period of 30 years – almost the life of an entire generation, almost the soundtrack of an entire generation, almost all the violence and all the passion…
Almost a road movie, forever on the run through the night; almost a neo-noir, never leaving the shadows and darkness of the concrete basements and bunker mazes – dark rooms, backstages and ladies' rooms…”, tells director Johanna Jackie Baier.
