PORNO E LIBERTA is the first documentary giving an insight on the Italian 70’s and tracing porn’s incredible genesis from the first magazines, photoshoots, censorship issues to its political and social repercussions — such as the election of Porn-star Ilona Staller (Cicciolina), the first to become parliament’s member.
It also offers food for thought about the 70’s & 80’s periods, years of transformations in which, pornography became a tool of protest and liberation, a real language.
The documentary brings to light a wide range of exclusive materials and interviews – pornographers, porn stars, writers, intellectuals, philosophers and feminists, from Lasse Braun to Riccardo Schicchi, from Marco Pannella to Ilona Staller, from Helena Velena to Judith Malina – who recall and recount what deserves to be defined as the most important sexual revolution in decades.
