JEWEL’S CATCH ONE celebrates the legacy of a legendary Los Angeles nightclub, Catch One, and the life-changing impact its owner, Jewel Thais-Williams, had on her community breaking down racial and cultural barriers and building the oldest black-owned disco in America. Jewel’s story celebrates music, fashion, celebrities and activism that helped changed the course of our country.

One of the original safe spaces for disenfranchised communities, 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 fight discrimination and serve the less fortunate as she fought tirelessly against racism, homophobia, and hate for over 4 decades.

Jewel built organizations such as The MINORITY AIDS PROJECT and RUE’s HOUSE (1st shelter for women with AIDS and their children) and later in life started her own non-profit health clinic next door to the club called, The Village Health Foundation, that she still works at today. #legacy

This documentary is packed with 40 years of music, untold history and exclusive interviews with celebrities, politicians, and people who were touched by Jewel’s community activism and vision to make Los Angeles and our world a better place foreveryone.

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, Jenifer Lewis, Representative Maxine Waters and Bonnie Pointer. CCH Pounder narrates this historically important film rich with music from the last forty years.
