The Burbank Bomber

Jerry Turner, 2022 (Post-production), Documentary

Film Synopsis

The Burbank Bomber pairs filmmaker Jerry Turner with Shelly Berg, aka The Burbank Bomber, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 60 something year-old who has had an outsized presence on the Los Angeles adult entertainment industry since her start as the headlining mud wrestler at the world famous Hollywood Tropicana during the 80s and early 90s.

More than a sex worker film, the documentary is a story about independence and how, even in Shelly’s “AARP stage of life,” a soaring free spirit continues to flourish in the age of the Internet. The Burbank Bomber portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people (most-people) are life's sustenance and reminds us that to thy own self be true.

Despite the abundance of women’s movements in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class San Fernando upbringing during the 60s and 70s, while enduring incredible tragedy. "I feel lucky to be working. If you're lucky enough to do something you love, then keep fucking doing it!”
