Nothing Really Happens is a beautifully written, unflinching story of three women: Tillie Hirsch, an elderly Holocaust survivor; Paula Brownell, a repressed college professor fascinated by striptease; and Carmela Petrelli, a Bronx-born stripper for whom “tits changed everything.”

The three have an intimate "hitchhiker-style" journey on which they collectively experience stripping and learn that while nothing really happens, some things really happen. Three very different women’s stories intertwine, in a painful and joyous journey of discovery in which they (and we) learn that second chances – and new stories – are possible.

The film stars Judith Malina, the internationally acclaimed actress and pioneer of radical theatre whose movie credits include Dog Day Afternoon, The Addams Family, Enemies: A Love Story and Household Saints.

Nothing Really Happens won First Prize for Narratives at the Director’s View Film Festival in February and will be awarded the Grand Festival Special Recognition Award by the Berkeley Video and Film Festival in October 2004.
