It’s Just Business, Baby (part of the trilogy of Super 8mm shorts "It's Just Business, Baby") examines the histories of various forms of body labor across the Chelsea and Tribeca districts that was renown as a site for sex work, sex clubs, and illicit sexual activity. The titular film of the trilogy captures an encounter between a client and a working girl where the lines of care are blurred following a session. The film repeats this encounter with the same actors switching parts to trouble the relationship of power that exists between that dynamic.

Performers: Nikki Sweet and Rosie Royale
