Documentary Feature: Do you own the dance floor?

Heehaw have teamed up with Manchester based director Chris Hughes to produce our first feature, a documentary about the legendary Hacienda nightclub. After closing its doors in 1996, the club was ripped down and pieces were sold off at a charity auction. Bricks, floorboards, girders, bollards and steel urinals were taken away by DJs, Hacienda regulars and fans alike, Do You Own the Dance Floor? tracks these people down in order to tell the complete story of the Hacienda experience from those that were there (and who remember)!

Currently in post, the film is slated for completion in May, and after its premiere in Manchester, it’s being lined up to play many major film festivals around the world. The project has also attracted interest from some unusual but exciting places! Keep an eye out for updates on the project via the blog or social.
