JEWEL'S CATCH ONE celebrates the legacy of Jewel Thais-Williams, an LA businesswoman, national activist, and healer who fought hate and discrimination for over forty years while building the legendary Catch One nightclub. One of the original safe spaces for LGBT folks of color and women, The Catch also served as a refuge for many during the AIDS crisis. As her club grew to become known as the "unofficial Studio 54 of the West Coast", Jewel became a national model for how to combat discrimination and serve the less fortunate. The film is a lush visual and musical journey highlighted by exclusive interviews with Sharon Stone, Thelma Houston, Evelyn "Champagne" King, Madonna, Sandra Bernhard, Thea Austin, and Bonnie Pointer. The story of Jewel and The “Catch” celebrates four decades of music, fashion, celebrity, and activism that helped changed the course of our country by breaking down racial, social, and cultural barriers.
