A ‘Twerkumentary’ Is Happening

by Becky Nash

A Twerkumentary is happening, y’all! And we cannot WAIT to see it. The film follows LA-based Italian director Spaghetto on a journey across the world to learn about the cultural origins and evolution of twerking. Before embarking on this film, Spaghetto had spent several years producing rap videos. The twerk-centric environment that she routinely worked in sparked her curiosity and led her to the creation of the Twerkumentary.

While entertaining and silly, the film results in deeper conversation about empowerment, freedom of expression and the influence that music and the Internet have on cultures around the world. The film features artists such as Big Freedia, Diplo, E-40, George Clinton, Ham On Everything, Khia, Kreayshawn, Mike G (Odd Future), Too Short and Dj Jubilee. The film will be released tonight the Wiltern Theatre in LA.

Check out this Indigogo video for more info about the film (also note Spaghetto’s sweet poop emoji earrings). Happy twerking!
