CAL_0223 Queen of the Deuce February 15

A Greek immigrant-turned-entrepreneur breaks taboos by establishing a porn empire in Times Square, gaining recognition as a shrewd and eccentric trailblazer. Born Rachel Serrero in a Sephardic community in Thessaloniki, Chelly Wilson escaped to America without her family at the outbreak of WWII. Amidst the sexual revolution and rise of gay rights, she transforms herself, establishing a thriving adult theater business in 1970s New York City. Her life was a mosaic of contradictions: a Jewish grandmother celebrating Christmas, a lesbian who married men, and a fearless leader in a male-dominated underworld. Combining archival footage, animation, home movies, interviews, and Chelly’s own accounts, this empowering feminist portrait celebrates a truly unique character with chutzpah in spades.
