The Pornographer (Le Pornographe)
Director: Bertrand Bonello
Featuring explicit, unsimulated sexual scenes by pornographic actress Ovidie, this film frankly confronts issues of integrity, art, and, well, porn. Jacques Laurent made pornographic films in the 70’s and ’80’s. His artistic ideas, born of the ’60’s counter-culture, had elevated the entire genre. Older and paunchier, he is now directing porn again. Jacques’s artistry clashes with his financially-troubled producer’s ideas about shooting hard-core sex.
